The Eyes Of Eighteen

Eighteen year olds should know better
Choosing a life of beginnings and ends
Sweet innocent eyes
We said we could do it
Now we march for our sanity
To gain some reprise

It worsened much more within two long years
A pandemic to end us
We worked longer and harder
Lost in a frenzy to test us
Eighteen and innocent
Became open eyed and destroyed
Seeing what we saw
Left them broken and ignored

A lesson was learnt
One we should never have had
They said they would help us
Through the good and the bad
Eighteen has gone
Replaced by a shadow
Of a child that shouldn’t have witnessed
What their brains couldn’t fathom
