Innocent

Innocent

A Poem by Sarah Marie

Innocence, gentle cage
From what is displayed,
Lust and pain and rage
Upon your mind will prey
Until your body follows
And crumbles to the ground-
Hearts are snatched, minds swallowed
By the echoes of sinful sounds
In a world desiring to touch,
Desiring to steal what is hidden-
They say it will not hurt much,
But realize what will be given
If innocence cannot withstand.
The world is the captor of souls
Of all-every man and woman;
Without innocence, where is good
And where is the hope and trust
That all the wanting world should
Have, all that it must
In order to survive a single day.
If innocence lives as even a sliver,
One can resist and not stray,
One does not need to quiver;
Innocence-
Sweet, precious thing-
It lessens an influence-
Such a necessary thing-
And desires are tamed.
When innocence is lost,
One can never be the same-
What a cost.

In sweet innocence is the feeling of peace, sheltered from the world of pain. Yes, wisdom came with a cost with that first tree, and evil was unleashed. Your words paint in darker hues that stain that cannot be washed away.

So true are your words this day. We all mus retain some sense of innocence for things to seem new. Very nice.
