Innocence Lost! - Poem by kipper Stagg

Innocence lost!


All of his life people had beaten him down,

Made him feel useless,

Treated him like a clown.


Sweet Love met with a volley of blows,

A weeping Heart and a bloody nose!


Constant Abuse from a tender age,

Life left him bitter,

A heart full of rage!


No one to hear his impassioned cries!

No one to wipe all the tears from his eyes!


And now he's a man everything's stayed the same.

Living his life with a heart full of shame!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This was written as an observation of bullying both at school and in the workplace
And how from a tender age such selfish actions can ruin lives!

    True and full of real pain..so happy I could be if only the first tear it would be wiped by me..the others I would pray for man to wipe himself in any way he can then look around and smile, there are so many reasons for! (*_*) (Report) Reply
