Eyes of Innocence

written by: Anne G

@TheInkTruth

 

If I could but see

into innocence's eyes

would I, could I

recognize me?

How long has it been?

Since conception or birth?

Was I born with this malice

or was it just learned?

Are malice and wisdom

one and the same?

Aren't both gleaned through living,

this journey called life?

I've pondered these questions

to know my true self

but fall short of the answers

to explain the unknown.

I feel like a child

unblemished and pure

yet at times fear I'm jaded

tainted, impure.

If I could but see into

innocence's eyes

would I, could I

recognize me?

Why write?

I write because I am:

Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.

My intention:To poke, prod and provoke!

"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
