blank.

conversations with children teach me the greatest lessons that I’ve ever had.
innocence blanketed with naivety.
naivety cushioned between their youth and their future.
a blanket that can be so quickly torn away.
but they cling on to it.
like a safety mechanism.
a blanket, a blanky, a blank page ready to be written on, a blank canvas, ready to experience the colours of life,
but it needs to get wet before it can dry,
they need to live, before they can die,
they need to ask the questions if they want to know why.
