Throwback Thursday Poetry: Lasting Impressions

lasting impressions of a happier time
when the innocence of a child plagued my mind

ignorance is bliss
that is the saying
the less i knew
the happier i played

not a care in the world
not a hint of shame
unfortunately for me
i thought ignorance was lame

knowledge overtook me
i began to use my brain
the only thing that stopped me
was the evil Hunger Pain

as i grew more aware
of my time and place
i started to see
everyone else’s true face

no one was trustworthy
no one was just
they all lived through a lie
they felt it a must

all one could count on
was choice and change
in my life of course
change was the thing

missing the sweet days of a happier year
but things will change more, that is my fear

Early poetry from James. From the poetry collection Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry.
