Kids know the truth.

They’re born knowing.

Completely devoid of the one-sided programming of school, parents, society.

Devoid of prejudice, pre-conceived ideas of who you are, who they are are.

Devoid of any ideas what sex, colour, age, may mean.

A clean canvas. A clean slate.

A pure little human being.

Who just wants to play with you and give you a hug.

Because you’re there.

Maybe they know something we forgot.
