Merciful innocence,
and beloved iggnorance...
Innocence is happiness,
Iggnorance is bliss.

Before i knew race,
or judged by someone's face.
Before i knew gender,
And thought girls much more tender.
Before I shed tears,
From now realalistic fears.

Before I seeded,
I was often misleaded.
Now im on track,
I wish I could go back :(

The author's comments:
This is my true feelings towards a loss of innocense. Once you lose sight of everyone being good people, you cant go back. And its hard not to judge someone by they're skin or face. If someone grows up around a father with a distinctive feature and associated something bad with that feature there is no goin back.

It's very good, but I don't think it's always true, although I suppose it is for many.
