Innocence - Poem by Thea Pound

It was a tranquil world,
With cloudy yet blue skies,
And singing, skipping girls,
Whilst boys chased butterflies.
The grass was green in summer,
Where you played with your friends,
And made valentines for lovers,
That you weren't afraid to send.
You read far too often,
And lived in a daydream,
A world filled with dragons,
Who would strike down the mean.
Europe was a world away,
There were no natural disasters,
A killing blow was a scrape,
And you'd save the world with plasters.
Peace was another word for quiet,
Because war zones didn't exist,
There was no place for riots,
In your world lay only bliss.
Tag was just a game,
But still you ran for your life,
Your invisible friend was to blame,
The cause of the only strife.
You'd be a superhero when you were older,
And protect everyone from bad guys,
But instead, the world grew colder,
And robbed the innocence from your eyes.
