Innocence – something lost too soon

Childish innocence
Mindlessly playing
Soft toy dripping with blood
Ripped by a multitude of wounds
Constant bombardment
On a disintegrating world

Childish innocence
Clutching tightly
To soft congealing toy
Trying to hold on to
Some kind of sanity
In a world gone mad

If you can’t take criticism
No matter whether well-meant or not
Never ever ask others’ opinion
For whereas a positive response
Will massively inflate your ego
A negative one will
Suck the very life out of you…
