The Innocents

Come out little girl
It’s time to shine your light.
No need to cower in the corner
Nor run in fright.
You are safe with us.

You hit 10 on the Richter scale
Sitting on the world’s greatest fault line.
It’s no fault of your own
So shine girl shine.
You are safe with us.

The battle is not over for you.
The white flag of surrender
Was your only choice.
Sad that it renders
Loss of hope
Loss of innocence
Girlhood interrupted.
Shine girl shine.
You are safe with us.
