Little Man

Little Man


You will grow up

With thorns and roses

But choose the roses

Not for its beauty and tenderness

But for its essence

Thorns are not bad

They increase the value of the roses

Little Man,

Grow up

It is necessary

Leave childhood and it will leave you

Do not neglect innocence

Even adulthood needs some childhood

Little Man,

Come up here,

From beneath divergent teachings

Ask questions and make mistakes

Feel free to reason alone

Think about life and death

Their importance and necessity

Think about dreams

And do not forget today

You need today to grow up, Little Man
