Differing perspectives

Watch it, kids!
We ARE watching!
Watch that you don't fall in!
We're watching that fish!
That's a shark, not a fish: Be careful!
We ARE being careful!
Don't stand so close to the edge!
I'm not standing, I'm squatting!

What I see, and what you see:
two very different perspectives.
Both are right
But only one is open to adventure.
How can we regain that faith,
that youthful attitude
of joy, and curiosity?
