Innocence
KishelRaj

When we were just born,
 1
Our minds were filled with innocence,
 2
Not knowing what was right or wrong,
 3
Not even knowing defiance,
 4
 
 
As we grew older by a year or two,
 5
Our world grew bigger and larger,
 6
Innocence was with us too,
 7
For none of us knew any wiser,
 8
 
 
As life started to show its bristles and thorns,
 9
And when people told naught but lies,
 10
Innocence was considered as something scorn,
 11
In this world full of evil ties,
 12
 
 
But a mindless few hid behind a shield,
 13
Pretending as though evil was rot,
 14
And to no avail these people will yield,
 15
Teaching future generations what's right and what's not.
