Innocent No More

Terror and fear have lead life
From as far back
As memories let you go
Heartache is the only love
You've been shown
Pain has been all you've known
Help has never came
And those who have
Where made to shelter the blame
While in the end
Results were worse
Then at the start
Another arrow, straight through your heart
That time will never mend
Faith might perservior
But but no amount of love
Will ever erase
All the terror and fear
For it stole your youth
It stole your innocence
Scaring you in ways
That will never go away
For you might be young
But time has aged you
Turning the young into the old
With eyes harboring secrets
Never to be told
Smothering the light
Of a little girl
Innocent no more
