  • When we’re small
    very small
    truth is what we experience
    as true
    some call it innocence
    but it’s not innocence
    only instinct

    When we’re small
    still small
    truth is what we’re told
    as true
    some call it knowledge
    but it’s not knowledge
    only indoctrination

    When we’re small
    not so small
    truth is what we question
    as true
    some call it rebellion
    but it’s not rebellion
    only longing

    When we’re tall
    no longer small
    truth is what we experience
    as true
    some call it revelation
    but it’s not revelation
    only us
