What if I became a philosopher?
Would it change me and open my mind?
Will it teach me more than I have learned in high school?
I long to understand the minds of many popular people
"Go study psychology then", you say.
But I want to study the quotes.
Sure I can study psychology and learn
About why some serial killers murder for fun
But I want to know about how and what they think
Just by the words they mutter in their jail cell
Or in the court room when they're waiting upon the jury's decision.
I want to discover the meaning of life and happiness
Is that too much to ask?
