Innocence - Poem by Dairedee BurrisLandwehr

Teenagers verging on adulthood;
cartoons replaced with the News, and
slumber parties meaning something completely

Different.

Belief in fairies, and
love for family, and immortality is
replaced with Belief in Death, Sex, and

Politics.

Crying out God's name or your
father's is no longer done in times of
affection or devotion, but

Ecstasy.

The only kids you hang out with
are products of your friends. Carbon copies
they've reproduced; like prints of the

Original.

Minis that have their eyes, and
nose; their smile and laugh. A new
generation to perpetuate unconditional

Love

Cartoons and Santa Clause. Birthdays and
the Greater Good. To believe in God, and
unquestionably, in the

Universe.
