Ask Life's Questions

why are people afraid
to think?
to make mistakes,
to be

I thought we
were supposed to
from our mistakes
and become better 

in my math class
we are supposed
to work
but we often 
consult each other
with our problems
because we don't 
want to be
we are all perfectionists
who don't want to be
for fear of loosing
what we've worked
so hard to gain
and if we are
proven wrong 
then that means 
that there are other things
we have yet to 

by having knowledge
we consider ourselves
above others, so
by proving us wrong
you are showing us 
how small we are
compared to 

so take my advice 
and prove as many 
"smart people"
wrong as you can
show them that there
is more to 
than showing off
in math class
and being 
make them do something
they haven't done 
in a long time
ask questions
