I was not very old when I first thought,
'I wonder how you tell the difference between
What we say it is from what it really is.'
With the concept of 'we' presumably 'people',
It was contemplation, not confrontation.
I was not bucking parents on principle.
What did I mean by 'say' or 'it' or 'really' or 'is'?
With such words the whole world goes round!
What did I see -understand - so young?
