Children are children
as long as they
are left alone.

They turn adults,
I mean in behaviour
when tutored.

Obvious. as I delineate
a small child very loving
as could be

a week back, behaves
odd recently, distances altogether
shows no recognition.

Incredible it is. Hard to
understand, harder still
to find a reason.

An attitude strange
but true. I am naive.
unaware of such nuances.
