Requiem for Innocence

Where have the foolish children gone?

The frivolous girls,

Blinded by vanity?

The dark-eyed boys,

Blinded by desire?

Have they lost the adoration

That they once had

For the pale blossoms of summer,

The whims of childhood?

Or have they lived too long

For their eyes to gaze upon beauty

As it stands in plain sight?

The author's comments:

As children, we all want to grow up, oblivious to what will happen when we do.
