The line is distinct, it’s true.
A human quest for knowledge,
And a thirst for intellect too.
But we need some matter to muse on,
How can we feed our imagination?
We ponder the origins of existence,
The big bang theory and evolution, or creation?
From the vast expanse of the universe
To the atom, incomprehensibly small
To “Would this still happen in a vacuum?”
Science strives to explain all.
It aids the progress of humanity,
With medicines, safe water, food to eat.
Provides infrastructure, transport, electricity
And fills our homes with heat.
Science explains natural phenomena
Like the tides and the seasons and weather
And the forces that allow us to run, drive and fly
Improving our lives is it’s endeavour.
Yes science is beautiful in many ways,
Pioneering and pushing our boundaries
For the advancement of mankind
And protection of the Earth
It makes us all humans together.
