when grown-ups learn to become children…

when they unlearn to be honest to themselves…
when they unlearn to respect the decisions they once made…

when they unlearn that negative breeds negativity…
when they unlearn math, to multiply grudges and divide families…

when they unlearn true stories, to twist them to idle gossip…
when they unlearn that life is too short, and there is no time for hate…

when they unlearn that they have lived their lives, as must their children…
when they unlearn to ‘live’, and forget to forgive…

when they unlearn that their children will one day learn to remember…
and silently watch them grow back into children.
