Is Ana Blandiana right?

Ana Blandiana – We should be born old
“We should be born old,
To come wise,
To be able to decide our fate in the world,
To know from the primary crossroad what roads start
and irresponsible to be just the longing to go.
Then to make ourselves younger, younger, going,
Mature and powerful we should come to the gate of creation,
Passing trough it and in love falling as teenagers,
To be children at the birth of our children.
However they would then be older than us,
They would learn us to speak, they would swing us to sleep,
We will disappear more and more, becoming smaller,
As the grain of grape, as the grain of pea, as the grain of wheat …”
