LOST INNOCENCE

LOST INNOCENCE

After a long journey, there is still a long way to go, if GOD wills

What I see, is different than yesterday, and transformed

I also am not the same, the one who slept last night

One day of my life added and erased in the same way

 

There was a time when I had an innocent heart and soul

My chase was only for small things, like the butterfly in a garden

My face carrying innocent tears and innocent smile

How lovely were those days? Those days of innocence

No greed, no jealousy, no agony, no haughtiness

I gravely miss those days, marvy days of my childhood

 

I was not prepared to face this dual faced world

Where there are two hearts, one seen and other unseen

It devastated my innocence and sepulchred it in an unknown land

I am still in the search, but no one tells me the address

All this world made me learn, is to be mean and selfish

But these things were never accepted by my heart and soul

Although innocence of childhood is far away from me now

But I am learning to be innocent again by the strength I have left

 

Honestly, it is a tough fight with myself

As every day, I struggle against the jealousy and ego

That I have earned, from the day I lost my innocence

The reason is simple, for what I am striving and struggling

I don’t want to give back the world what it gave me of its meanness

As there are innocent heart growing up,

And I don’t want me to be the one, for destroying their innocence

Rather, truth is the need for me, as well for the world out there

I surely know now, that my days would also come to end, one day

And I would be raised again, to stand in front of my Maker

I don’t know whether I would be having any good deeds left in my account

But I would fight and struggle all my life to earn them

Rest all, I put my trust to my LORD

Without His mercy, I won’t be successful in this journey of mine
