What Children Understand

Wow, it is amazing what children pick-up on. There is no hiding anything when they get to be over three years old. Why didn’t anyone tell me this?

Even having scattered conversations with my wife throughout the day seems to rearrange into comprehensible information inside my children’s heads. Then I face a barrage of questions about my work, bills and who is fighting with who.

The only escape is a second language provided the children don’t understand that as well.

Unfortunately for my parents I understood them when they spoke in their mother tongue trying to hide the conversation.


I’ve come to the conclusion that there is no point in deceiving the kids about things. But when it comes to that which does not concern them such as Bills, Money and other Adult things that is where I stop talking and they don’t get involved.

Because they are children and don’t need to know about the hard struggle, just the happy bits.

They Understand

Despite how basic their understanding of events and information is; it is a fact that they understand. Whether they just associate bad feelings with a word, it doesn’t matter because the connection has been made.

I’m going to be more careful when I speak and act around my children from now on and I suggest that you do so too.

Game of Poems

I invert inconsistencies in intellectual interactions

Subverting superfluous sections for satisfaction

The theological thesis that torments this territory

Could collectively collide causing catastrophic calamity

But being bemused before breaking big barriers

And acting an accolade accordingly accurate

Would worsens what works without weighing what weakens

Rational reactions reach risky rogue readers

Do donors donate detrimental diseases?

Just joined jurisdictions of Judas and Jesus?

Each evaporate evidence escaping Earth’s ether

Kill kneeling knights kept kowtowing kin keepers

How has humanity held high hospitality

Grudges grow gaining great girth, gore and gravity

Luminous lives lift like lit lanterns luring

Peace packs a punch perfect purchase of purity
