outing the innocent

poem

due to circumstances beyond their control

a war was raged on the pure of heart

deception and indifference extinguished their Light

Hope with without Faith was forced to fly blind

crashed into ashen rainbows and shattered

scattering shards into raw raped flesh

not yet covered by hardened scar tissue and malice

nothing grows in the dark except for mold and cold hearts

eyes eventually start to adjust to darkness and now the Light

actually burns

the first time

one wears rose colored glasses.
