Innocent

INNOCENT Am I not Innocent That I am being subjected to war Against my own wishes Why? Am I not innocent? Am I not Innocent That I am being subjected to slaughter Against my own wishes Why? Am I not innocent? So who is INNOCENT and in whose eyes? If beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, Perhaps so does Innocence. Perhaps these days Innocence is decided Decided by the man or woman Who wants to slaughter Slaughter for meat or meal Slaughter for power or money Slaughter for fame or fear Slaughter for faith or freedom Slaughter is Slaughter! Innocence is no more innocence..... Innocence of the plant or flower has vanished Just the way the cow's has....and so has the dog's.... Innocence has given way to slaughter.... When will humankind regain the fragrance of innocence again?? ---@copyright 2017 Sima Mittal
