Innocence Lost Poem by Dave Alan Walker

Innocence Lost

Rating: 4.3

Oh lord forgive me
for what I have done
I know you shouldn't
go eye for an eye
but what would you have done

Listen to my confession
and tell me what I should have done

I see you in the morning
I see you in the night

I see your face
But I never see your eyes

You took away my innocence
You took away my life

I knew some day we'd meet again
But this time I'm a man

I saw you hurt someone
I said I'd die for you

then I pulled the knife and killed you

you took away my innocence

But I took away your life

What a sad story....! very very painful. its a real story and must be told, your God will forgive you. That monster would have done more and hurt many....

An eye for an eye, is not always the worst case, sometimes, to do less would be to create the most damage. Beautiful writing.
