Ask Life's Questions

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

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

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

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

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