Pure

 

Today’s word high july challenge 

As I stare into her eyes,

I see a reflection of something lost,

Something that was once mine.

An innocence, a faith in goodness,

in compassion and kindness.

I see her looking at everyone alike,

I wonder how does it feel like?

To see people without

judgments and prejudices

to not hide the truth between lies?

How does it feel,To not feel the need

to be on guard all the time.

I fear for her safety

will she be fine?

I see her wide eyes,

smiling, reassuring somehow

and I think to myself,

with a heart so kind and a smile so pure,

whatever problems come her way,

her guardian angel will find a cure.

    Poignantly written, Sneha. You’ve stirred a lot emotions in us and I fear for the child as well. I hope this world of conformity and charade does not steal away her innocence.
