Through a Child's Eyes

Through a Child's Eyes

A Poem by Skye

Why are children broken to see past their minds -

to experience the world solely through their eyes?

So much is lost when we see what we should.

Ludus, this is what you reminded me of, the child-like love, where innocence tastes like curiosity and maturity devolves into simplicity. Yes. Very good indeed

'innocence tastes like curiosity' - beautifully worded! Thank you for your review :)
this feels soo much like absolute truth. I ask myself this all the time especially in the field of writing. "so much is lost when we see what we should" awesome line to bring the poem to a close

This is so simple but so true. It shows that the worlds steals a child's innocence when it's least expected. Great write look forward to reading more. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for reviewing :)
speaks of innocence lost, like all that each stanza infers, your subliminal style tantalizes the mind and imagination. Your 1st and 3rd verses coincide and support each other, the second verse leaves an open ended
mystique; the absence of a fourth verse calls the reader's focus, of course I like it

I'm glad :) Thank you for your review!
If only our eyes wouldn't grow up as fast as the rest of us. When did the world become so serious? Through a child's eyes, what better way to see things? Your poem is beautiful Skye. It has a tenderness and an innocence that is long lost once we grow up and see things for what they really are.

Thank you :)
Simplistic but utterly beautiful. The nature allows for lots of personal meaning to be added to the poem whilst also showing your own personal meaning. Nicely written x Well done.

Sometimes, I forget my passion underneath the demands of life and want of perfection. Then there are those nights where everything is clear, and I can't help but write what I feel. I love meeting .. more..
