The Tree of Knowledge

(NaPoWriMo Day 4)
A child knows to cry
Before he knows the word
He learns to smile
Before he forms the word
He loves a friendly face
Before he learns the name
He masters the face of a foe
Before he masters his name
He knows to deceive
Before he captures the word
It is in man to do good
It is in man to do evil
Both implanted in him
Along with the will to choose
He has the power to choose
Who enslaves him
