Blind Faith of Youth - by Bob Atkinson

Blind Faith of Youth
(c)2013 Bob Atkinson

for so many years we knew
in our simplicity of youth
we held a shield of invincibility
protection from destruction

knew truly not our destination
our path, methods, skills of creation
only knew we could survive
to best this world and all its vices

dark shadows of mystery drove
routes of our presented dreams
in bringing home with harmony
that predetermined formal destiny

to grow, blossom and procreate
conquer, thrash or dominate
all that came into our sight
those insincere foes of light

and now
with hindsight of magic mirrors
lessons learned from trial and error
we move toward those golden days
not clouded by youth's purple haze
