It wasn’t mere curiosity that killed the cat
No matter how many people you’ve heard constantly quote that.
We’re told curiosity is good, the key,
I’m sure you must see
To the world of knowledge & facts,
Not to mention unleashing inner wisdom, to be tact
So why would it kill the cat?
Curiosity just for curiosity’s sake
Could more than you think be put on stake.
Do you want to study because you want to know the world
Or do you want to study so they’d call you a man who’s learned?
And do you want to know the world because you want to know God
Or do you want to know the world to be reason they are awed?
Curiosity killed the cat, they say
But I say curiosity without noble purpose ended its day.
Do you want to learn the secrets of her heart
Because of her life you wish to be a part
Or are you curious just to see
What’s really going on in her mind internally
With no intention of putting that knowledge to use
But simply to entertain your boredom, a temporary muse…
This could be the end.
Know that the type of curiosity that killed the cat
Was the kind that had no means but itself
is the end
