INNOCENCE

Written by: Demetrios Trifiatis

INNOCENCE


Innocence,
You, clear and clean water of
Consciousness,
Pure thought of our unadulterated 
Mind,
Devoted instrument of divine
Will,

Born with us you were,
In our early years 
Every step of ours you
Tenderly attended,
Always, 
The road of virtue
Advising us to take

BUT

Little by little, 
As years passed by, 
The path of honesty we lost 
From our sight 
And
You, Oh innocence, 
Slowly but persistently
Were chased away,

Now, 
Without you, our hearts 
A desolate place has 
Grown to be,
An unbearable desert 
Of regret,
Desperately 
A drop of your virtuous dew, 
Upon our sinfull lips we 
Pray to fall, 
Yearning 
Children to become 
AGAIN!
