“Behind the eyes of an innocent” by Eureka C. Bianzon

Arms laid on a surface,

Face worn with inconsolable feeling

Mysterious shades of innocence

From unfathomable being

Might show unknown gestures

Temper tantrums in front of the crowd

Behind her eyes is a creature

With no shades of anger & doubt

Shadow of grief,

Dried tears on cheeks

Yet behind the eyes of her

Is a world with freedom & peace

Behind the eyes of an innocent

Is a smiling heart at every fight

Behind the eyes of an innocent

Is a heart of forgiveness at every cry
