In every little child I live
a natural habitat made for me
where I am fed with wonderful things
that are good for my soul and being.
Sight, Sound, Smell and Touch
are some of my favourite food
WHATs, WHYs, WHENs and HOWs
will make very special treats.
I love fun play
as they are staple for my growth
Lavish and fanciful are not the keys
Sadly these are what some believe.
Just like any other living things
I get sick when fed the wrong things
Worksheets, tests and exams
are stresses that kills my passion for things.
Some people believe
I am the creator of Natural Science and Mathematics
for I fuel the passionate desire to understand
to seek the truth in all things.
Every once in a few centuries
a miracle bestowed
often a genius who possesses me
the force behind thirst for knowledge and quest for truth.
Unfortunately, my life in modern education is short lived
for my growth is inadvertently stifled
my sacred existence is undermined
and I may only be heard, when the subconscious of a child speaks.
Note : ‘There is such a thing as a passionate desire to understand, just as there is a passionate love for music. This passion is common with children, but is usually vanishes as they grow up. Without it, there would be no natural science and mathematics’ ~ Albert Einstein
