I lived as a child

I learnt a lesson in school

I thought I know it all

Then I saw the real world

I saw the pain, the tears

The reasons for the angst I knew not

I ought to feel naïve

I saw some losses of the life

And tears roll, I saw some panic, some steer

I saw the angel and the devil

Lessons I learnt in school never taught me all this

I unlearnt all and learnt again

If only I had learnt the reality

But then again I am thankful to my teachers

They never let me face the truth as a child

I knew not hunger

I knew no mortal being

I knew no pain

I knew no angst

I lived in bliss, I lived as a child

Finite Creatures
