Stages

A babe
Knows not.
Like a seedling
Instinctive.

A child
Like a pup,
Is guided.
By a mother’s hand.

A tween
Like ansty kittens play,
Knows not right from wrong
Until tamed by parent’s lead.

A teen
Like the tree,
Stands alone.
More independent.

An adult
Like all animals,
Ever learning
And life lessons.
