Innocent

How in control are you?

As the world turns

As the years fly by

“Give in,” They command

“Why fight a hopeless fight?”

“We will care for you.”

“We will protect you.”

“You are safe in our hands.”

In the eyes of masses

They are like we

Born of purity

But, remove the veil

Take away the curtain

Behind it slithers

And strikes the hand of mercy

Yet, what path should you take

The one deprived of sense

Or one who braves the elements
