Innocence Lost

When was the last time you heard,

Someone whisper your name?;

With her bare hands laid

On your soul, wandering untamed.

When was the last time you heard,

Someone sing you a song?;

Less music and more words

Left you eager to belong.

When was the last time you sensed,

That forlorn togetherness?;

Born out of standing against

Creeds and beliefs, all deemed hopeless.

When was the last time you cried,

Without being aware that you are a man?;

For men are supposed to take pride

That they don’t have a heart, since time began.

Lately I’ve realized

That life is not worth living,

If you have already died

To the many greys and colours in the offering.

I’ve cried, I’ve fought, I’ve loved and I’ve belonged.

Stretching my conscience

To the alleys it never discovered.

But in the bargain, I lost my innocence.
