Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

Innocent Eyes

They say the eyes are a
window to the soul.
When I look into your eyes
there's a story untold.
Innocent as a baby brand new,
Pain once felt I bid adieu.

Innocent eyes you know how I feel,
by looking deep into my heart, love
my soul should've revealed.

Innocent eyes your make me
wonder with every look.
What stories are held within
your spiritual book.
Innocent eyes from whence
one look provides strength.

Innocent eyes I could stare
for times of length.
Innocent eyes I wish there
were a better me.
Innocent eyes for lack of this
I must leave you be......
