19 - Innocence

If you drop your knowledge,
All that's been given you,
Your name, identity, expectations,
You can be born anew,

A child with the innocence they all have,
No, not to be childish,
Before the mistrust and doubt life teaches,
When change is a wonder and goals a wish,

A praying mantis perched on your finger,
Sharing stories of joy,
Pink flowers cascade all around you,
Abandon like a boy,
Or a girl, too!
It's about acceptance,
Imagine a world that is magical,
It's more real than an imagined semblance.
