a stunted 
plant 
a moth 
eaten 
leaf 
a girl 
childs 
grief 
to grow 
or not to 
grow 
in brief 
her innocence 
her badge 
of honor 
stalked 
by thieves 
no respite 
no reprieve 
shattering 
the soul 
of all belief 
god is helpless 
no relief

a bud 
a blooming 
rose 
stabbed 
by a thorn
the hate 
the scorn 
for her

dies 
before 
she 
sees
the dawn

their families

groping
for god
in the
darkness
they gave
up light
aligned
their fate

of color
broken
wings
aborted
flight
a winding
path
no left
no right
guided
by inner
sight

cosmic chaos
jeopardized
journey
lost in transit
endless wait
one destination
confusing
far too many
colliding gates
too much talk
of love only hate
disjointed debate
jarring notes
irritate ..once
a peaceful world
now bombs detonate
deteriorating flesh
the restless soul
'in dire straits

innocence betrayed..., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.


on the crossroads 
of life innocence 
waylaid situation 
man made 
innocence 
afraid 
innocence 
preyed 'by
perverts 
depraved 
on the soul 
of humanity 
molten tears 
engraved 
law order 
justice 
blindfolded 
they come 
they raid 
innocence 
unsaved 



born to beg
