REASONING BEHIND THE POEM


-Impaired Innocence-
(By Ahlife Beconds)


Innocence
Is a shield
Meant to protect you from
Reality,
Yet
It cracks and fractures
Under every blow.
With each dent, comes
Pangs of unbearable pain.
Until eventually,
Our innocence
Shatters.
We crumple to the ground
With the
Weight of the
World’s vile deeds
Upon our shoulders.


We become Atlas;
Holding up the weight of the sky.
