Innocence Lost

Coincidence brought me to you with good intentions,

Hoping to change my attitude towards love.

After so many of the same mistakes, I should have known.

No person could resist being trapped by the allure that

Concealed your true motives. It was painful learning

Each drop of innocence lost can never be reclaimed. 

 

Over and over again, I criticized myself 

Reliving the pain of being used.

 

I felt the weight of guilt cutting off air when

Some innate voice whispered,

 

It does not define who you are.

The decision is yours.

 

Fortunately, I could hear that voice-but many don't.

Advocate for the love and appreciation

That every girl deserves- for

Everything she is, was, and will be.
