Innocence Lost

Ever present past
Haunting future's fate
Take away the fear
Before it is too late
Enter into dreams
Never to awake
Child loses innocence
Someone else does take
Strip away skin
Pull away a soul
Replace it with an agony
No one should ever know
Penetrate the body
Permeate the heart
Disturb the little mind
Tear it all apart
An ever present past
Affects so many things
I wonder why it happens
When I see all that it brings
