Day 2: Human – Christina Perry
The Bonds of Blood and Bone
A hallowed pledge we swore
In that instant of little fingers.
Mine to harm.
Mine to protect.
Years have dimmed sweet smiles,
Dulled bright eyes and eager giggles.
A panic has taken root,
Unable to shield that precious purity
From the shadows lurking.
No longer is innocence cocooned
In a wondrous world
Where dreams come true.
Eyes are open that cannot be closed.
Be strong, little warrior.
Prepare to fight.
The strength of little fingers
Wrapped around mine.
Far from perfect but there you go! I will no doubt edit this at a later stage but tell me your thoughts! 🙂
