Leaving Childhood Behind

It’s so easy to leave childhood behind.
The good things, I mean. The bad things,
those, we carry along. Joy is left behind early on:
The joy of wondering, and of play soon dies, and
the joy of always trying new things, also, departs.

Forgive and forget is left behind too, and we learn
to hold to our grievances soon enough. Two
things that are hard to leave behind are
thinking, and reacting like a child. A serious
mistake, we often make, is not to use child
psychology when asking adults to change
any behavior. LOL
