Two+Two=Four.
Five+Seven=Twelve.
They're easy solutions,
stored in the back of our mind;
taught over and over again.

So when did Math become
more important than life?
Why do we not get told how
to deal with family crisis
yet Arithemetic is being whispered
in your ear?

Why do we learn to count
numbers, yet not how to raise
a family at the young age
we're forced to grow up at?
Why does no one know the
answer to why there is suffering,
but they can recite the porperties of zero?

Because, simply put,
it's easier. To explain, to do,
to know about. We don't know
the answer to life, so knowing Math
makes us feel superior in
an unsuperior world.
