Innocence

from the collection, Reflections: Personal Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces © 2001

.

If an innocent man
Dreams that he is fallen,
And trudges through
Black lies of deceit
And betrayal;

.

If he fancies himself
A murd’er on the run,
Deep in hiding —
Suspect, and trusting
Of no one;

.

I ask you, when sunlight
Finds him deep within his
Fitful slumber,
And calls out for him
To awaken,

.

And at last
He feels the morning
Upon his eyelids —
The song of birds
In his ears,

.

Will he not awaken
To knowledge that he
Believed in illusions,
That his innocence
Remains unchanged?

.
