Yearn to Learn

They teach me how to summarize,
To paraphrase and symbolize

They teach me of what came before,
Of kings and gods and peace and war

They teach of camels, cats and crabs,
And microscopes which help for labs

They teach me how to calculate,
Of squares and lines, both curved and straight

But oh how all this bores me so,
For what I really yearn to know

Is how to love, to find what’s sweet,
To live a life that’s deemed complete

Teach me to discover passion,
And all the thrill which I’ve imagined

Don’t teach me what’s of your concern,
For this I do not yearn to learn
