Innocence

Do you remember?
Remember the time,
when you were
young, sweet, innocent
and naive?

So young.
So confident.
So unconcerned.

Not caring,
if someone judged you,
it didn’t matter.
As long as you were doing something that made
you happy.

I don’t remember,
what is was like
back when I was
that innocent, naive child.
So happy and carefree.

As I grow older,
society has broken in
stolen that innocence,
stolen my peace.

I am no longer,
happy,
carefree,
confident.

I am now;
scared,
anxious,
nervous.

Why did society have to break in?
Where did the innocence go?
How can I get it back?
