Life is either black or white; right or wrong; this or that; left or right.
How strange adults are, how proud, how arrogant!
How heavy the burden they carry,
How unbearable the sins of their past;
How they struggle with a simple smile, a sorry…
How harsh on friends but kind to strangers they seem.
Polite to the powerful, how callous to the poor they can be.
How quickly occur misunderstandings,
How difficult they are to resolve.
So unsolvable are small disputes;
So effortless it is to hold a grudge.
If only things could be as simple as seen by a child
How easy theory appears against practice!
If only one could live for the moment,
Forget every tussle in minutes,
Worry not what may befall, fear not the future.
If only one could bury one’s ego…
