“Innocence Lost”

Inspired by Annette Palladino.

Do you feel the burn,
the burn to learn about the world.

From when you are born,
until the day of your inevitable death,

you are living a thing called life.

This event is about the journey,
not about your life’s final destination.

It consists of failures,
accomplishments and all in between,

in this wondrous thing called life.

The choices of lost innocence
lead to growth, sins and passionate memories,

of childhood dreams realized,
of gray days in the golden years of existence,

in this amazing moment called life.

We taste of the scars
experienced under stars so vibrant,

losing something valuable
to us all in our once innocent world,

our child like innocence in this thing called life.
