Give me a child who questions the world,
One who asks why or how every hour.
For that little one will go far in this life,
Because their curiosity carries much power.
Power to make the world a better place,
Questioning how things have always been.
Inquisitive minds seek to understand it all,
As things aren’t always what they seem.
These are ones who are not content
To accept that there is no better way.
They seek to make life easier for us,
By searching for knowledge every day.
So, when a child seems to drive you crazy,
Asking questions about everything they see,
Remember it was the inquisitive ones of old
Who made the world better for you and me.
