The poet feels he lost his childhood when he became twelve years old; the second guess he makes his maybe he lost it when he could not find heaven and hell in his geography book; or maybe when realized the hypocrisy of adults; or maybe when he realized his mind could think his own peculiar and unique thoughts.
