Innocence stolen without my permission
Innocence gone without my submission
Innocence lost through another's plan
Innocence no longer for another man
Innocence turned to hatred and fear
Innocence gone, no man can come near
Innocence taken from a little girls heart
Innocence replaced by mistrust, you thought you were smart
Innocence dissapears like dew in the sun
Innocence faded before it's begun
Innocence obscured like a cloud over the moon
Innocence ripped away too soon
Can you stand at the edge of life, looking over the precipice,
Be willing to take that final leap and hope the next life will bring more joy than sorrow, more love than hurt, more laughter than tears,
Can you stand there and then turn back and try again in this life?
Can you look at the bliss of nothingness –
No pain, no hurt, no war, no famine, no abuse, no hate
Nothing! And then turn back to this world and live a full, happy and whole life?
Is that possible?
