the nature of innocence

The Nature of Innocence

There are
no degrees
of innocence.


Innocence is
pure &
has a
profound
effect on
whoever
it touches.


I am
obviously
not innocent
or I
wouldn’t be
running
my mouth
about it.


But I
feel tenderness
towards innocence,
which is
the next
best thing
to having it.


Anyone who
does not
feel tenderness
towards innocence
has lost
his soul.
