Have you ever wondered some things?

Have you ever wondered?

Wondered why Isaac Newton was hit on the head by an apple?

He would tell you it was because of gravity

A religious man would tell you it was the work of God 

But maybe, the tree saw Isaac sitting there

And decided it would be funny to drop an apple on his head

And see the reaction. 

Is anyone any more right than the other?


Have you ever wondered why we feel love?

A social scientist would tell you that we need to feel close

And most people would agree

A biologist might include something about 

Our natural instincts, or a desire to reproduce

But what if love is something that humans invented? 

What if we have tricked ourselves into believing it's needed?

What's the real answer? 


Have you ever wondered about the stars?

An astronomist might tell you they're big balls of fire

Billions of miles away

A tribesman might say that they're the spirits

Of his ancestors passed 

Regardless of what they think

All we see is little specs of light

So how do we justify who to believe? 


Have you ever wondered about why we wonder so much?

We wonder the wondrous wonders of the world

With questions that will never be truly answered

Questions like, "how did the universe begin?",

"Is there other life somewhere out there?" or

"What did I eat for dinner yesterday?"

Well I can tell you right now, that until we get some solid

Undisputable proof, none of these answers are right

So believe what makes you happy

Not what everyone else tells you to.
