I AM WHAT I SEE
I am one who is full of thoughts
Curiosity behind my eyes
I think but do not know.
I say what is heard,
I do what is observed,
I am what I see.
Please guide the ‘little me’,
Help me grow the way you want me to be!
Why “I Am What I See?”
My third entry to Fifty Words–click the link to know more about the Fifty Words. This is a child’s perspective of whom he/she is. As a child, they are full of curiosity and their imagination is playfully wild.
The first stanza displays a kid’s description of himself. They think a lot and observe a lot, and every little thing is a curiosity to them. They think, yes, but they don’t know a lot in a context that they could not understand everything, unless a parent or someone older than them would explain things for them.
The second stanza is a continuation of a child’s description of himself. Whatever they hear, whether good or bad, is something that they would apply to themselves–all because they heard it from the environment. They say what they heard, and they do what they observe. Basically speaking, they are what they see.
The third stanza speaks of a child’s pleading to the adults, essentially the parents, to teach them the ways of how things should be in their lives. This speaks of guidance from the adults. Children need the discipline, guidance, and protection from their parents to help them grow into mature adults that their parents want them to be.
Proverbs 22:6 ”Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
