Day 28 NaPoWriMo – The Age of Innocence

Published April 28, 2013 by Laura Crean Author

Holding the World in an Open Hand by Laura Crean

Once the Earth was young and green and pure.

Nature danced in blissful youth.

The sun warmed the seas and seasons were sure

that summer would be long and proof

that winter held a short spell over the world.

And for an age there was a peaceful ignorance

amongst the children of the Earth,

who knew nothing of blood or fear or vengeance.

They knew only life, love, death and rebirth.

What stole the age of innocence away?

What power cast its evil spell?

What led the children far from play

and on into the influence of Hell?

Jealousy and Greed and fear and loss,

invented by a bitter heart,

that taunted and seduced humanity and cost

our children’s future for a start.

Will an age of innocence return

and give the Earth another chance for freedom?

It is a distant hope and dream to yearn

for a new and better chance to live in God’s great Kingdom.
