Section B: Naive
Seeing the world through a fresh set of eyes.
Possibilities, adventure, safety.
Free in spirit and sincere in consonance.
Then the rocks are flying in from several directions.
Though innocent, she somehow finds trouble. Rather, trouble finds her.
The rocks continue to fly by, sometimes making contact, other times missing.
The rocks cause scars. The scars, painful reminders of the past.
Where did she go wrong?
She didn’t know.
Now she knows, the scars tell her so.
She brushes off the dirt, although discouraged, starting to close into her shell.
She misses the innocence but she cannot go back.
There are no re-dos and there is no hiding.
She must forgive.
Only forgiveness will help her through her trials.
She back tracks to the days of good.
Kitty whiskers, warm and wet dog noses.
Rainy day reads.
These are the only thoughts she cares to keep around.
As the rocks continue in.
