Father and Child

The child walks with his father
And they both see the same sights:
The child wants to touch the flower,
But his father wants to hurry by.
The child is happy and smiles at passers-by;
His father tells him people are not good
And so the child should be glum.
The child says he cannot; father tells, “Please try.”
The child thinks his father is wrong,
And father knows his child is right;
But he dare not be innocent again
For sadly, now he cannot be like his child.
