Childish Wisdom - Poem by Akara K.

Funny how
Adults always seem to think
That they're so much smarter
Than kids
While adults are the ones
Who are racist
Are the ones
Who sort people into a social hierarchy
Are the ones
Who judge people
By where they live
Or how they dress.
To a child
Another person is just
Someone else to make friends with
And play with
Whether they're black or white
Rich or poor
Ugly or beautiful.
To a child
The world is just
One big adventure
Waiting to happen.
To a child
Nothing really matters.
Why is it that
While we are all so immature
We can't be more like
