Last night I had a dream

About this little girl

Don’t know who she was

She was a lot different from the world.

She seemed like a part of me

But were we the same

I looked into her eyes

And suddenly I was filled with shame

Because her eyes were so true

Pure like a pearl

All my deeds came upon me

My lies started to unfurl

So I asked her who she was

And why she was here

With a belonging she said

‘I am your long lost friend, my dear.’

As I heard the truth in her voice

I felt a void in my soul

I felt so incomplete

Though I was whole

I again asked her,

‘Where did I lose you?

Where did you go?’

She thought for a while

And then with a regret she spoke

‘Walking down the aisle of life

You never happened to realize

In an effort to get the best

You lost me in your lies

You lost me when you had a choice

And you preferred the easy one

In the chase of being adored

You bullied others for fun

Yes I am the innocence you lost

When you were no more a child

But I didn’t go alone

I also took away your carefree smiles

And now for a better future

As you strive

There’s still an ounce of me left in you

I request you, please, keep it alive.
