Elements – Asking

In wonder are we born
And meant to live.
The questions that we ask
Are part of what makes
Human beings human.

But soon some feel,
That answering means power,
Not conversing.
So they stop asking questions,
Thinking those a sign
Of weakness.

They’re so wrong.

Questions, like emotions,
Make things happen;
Asking, like loving,
Is part of all worth
