Wonderment of a Child

There is darkness in this world,

A lot of it.

But there is intense beauty as well.

As children,

We see the beauty easily.

Wondering what the colors mean

What the animals say

What the heart really is.

We must learn,

As we venture from childhood to adulthood,

To continue seeing the world

With the wonderment of a child.


The darkness consumes us,

And we are left alone

In darkness and hate

Wallowing in our own self doubt.
