The Lost Innocence – Written Wednesday 3rd January 2001 (Aged 25)

The Lost Innocence

the lost innocence
lost in earlier years
to alcohol and tears
god, i feel old…
i am counting decades
my life has been an adventure
do not let the memories fade
hanging onto the future
the lost innocence
taken by those
those that had nothing
well i gained something
i know i can achieve
this is not the time to leave
work is a poor imitation
of my real dreams
it is pale and dull
it does not satisfy my feelings
the lost innocence
lost in darker times
