Teach me how to derive
An equation for what it means to be alive
See, there’s no secant line
From where I am to the future I have in mind
What does it mean to be right?
A scantron bubble darkened with graphite?
Don’t we turn our eyes
To those lessons and skills I can’t just memorize?
How to unfold the mind
Bridge the gaps between the varied interests of mankind
Is what I’ve waited to ask
A robot each night completing task after task when
Too many students I know
Are learning how to imitate but not how to grow
