Innocence Not Lost - Visitor's Poem

by Adrian McGinn
(Paris, France)

When did I pack away innocence
I wanted to be a grown-up surely
But surely if I hid my innocence
The more surely I matured
But truly the less unique I became
The fun, the curiosity truly gone
Contaminated truly by complexity
Intoxicated surely by sophistication
Surely by re-discovering my innocence
Truly & surely my life renews itself
