Cage Of Innocence Poem by JJ Evendon

Cage Of Innocence



I stand and stare,
not wanting to go further
worried that, should I enter,
I'll be lost in the depths of the labyrinth
becoming confused, disorientated and without direction.
A 'cage of innocence' where nothing is forgiven,
and to the uninitiated, everything appears similar.
In trepidation, I gingerly step forward.
Fearing above all else I may never return,
ambivalent to the cause that's driving me.
I am pursued by curiosity
and led blindly by instinct.
What fool does this? I ask myself,
but hear only silence.
The 'cage of innocence' blocking vision
all but the sky above.
It's sides stand tall, domineering and intimidating.
I suddenly feel claustrophobic.
Yet I soldier on, turning at every new path.
I am swept by a feeling of angst.
Sense of being lost bring waves of panic.
All too soon I find myself in an open space.
A place beyond any imagination
for I see the ground covered in a sea of golden butterflies.
knitting coloured rainbows
with prisms of light.
