Pleas of a yound child

I am not an adult.  I am not a puppet either

Nor is my mind a blank slate to be written upon

I do have thoughts and views you know

Just because you do not understand them,

Or I do not discuss them

Does not make them irrelevant

  

I wish I was allowed to learn freely about

All the wonderful things in the world around me.

I wish I had the opportunity to explore

Everything that seems interesting

 

I wish I were not treated as an inferior being with lower intelligence

Many a time I am shown something from afar

And told to watch others working with it

Do they think I cannot do the same without hurting it?

Or do they think it is not necessary for me to

Many a time I am asked to repeat after adults

The same thing over and over again

Did they even realise that my fertile mind

Had already strayed to something exciting I saw

Why show me things which I cannot explore , understand or relate to?

 

I am not a smaller sized adult with the same abilities on a lower scale.

I am my own person with my own opinions on all I see and do

All I am asking for is opportunities to learn

Tools that I can work with to become better

 

I want to be as competent as you

Who seem so smart and independent

Please do not do everything for me

Please do not try and make my life so easy

That will really reduce my confidence

And my chances to excel in whatever I do.

When I started with Grandmaster Kyongwon Ahn in the 70 s we were <a href="http://hdivekova.com">taguht</a> that it is a sign of respect and humility, as a teenager when we went to tournaments I noticed all the Masters and Grandmasters presented themselves this way, now more than 33 years later I teach my students the same way.
