Return to Innocence

That we 'stray from the path' isn't so important, for we all do at times. That we know how to return is more important.

June 28, 1997

I was listening to pure moods again this morning, and the lyrics of the first song, Return To Innocence by Enigma, spoke to me:

Just believe in Destiny,
Don't care what people say,
Just follow your own way,
Don't give up and lose the chance,
Return to innocence.

MC Curly

Spoke to me, the song did, and inspired me too, to a poem with an important message;

Return to Innocence (The Birthright)

Innocence ... pure ... clean ... light of ease ...
Innocence ... free of stain ...
Let go of undeserved pain,
Let go of boundaries.
Set free ...
Reclaim your smiling power!
Reclaim your dancing light!
Reclaim your singing truth!
You know you have that voice.
Hear it,
Hear it deep within.
You know no one can take this journey for you.
Return ...
... to Innocence.
