Innocence

It was the innocence that had to go

Replaced by a savage truth

We needed a moment to catch our breath…

Processing took some time

I know what fears haunt them

I’ve seen those 1000 yard stares

Whispers in the dark that find no takers

Just a longing for yesteryears…

When things were simpler

When we were children.
