Philosophy, oh philosophy, a field so vast and wide

A treasure trove of wisdom, to help us all inside

For in the quest for self-discovery, and personal growth too

Philosophy can be a guide, to help us all renew.

For philosophy asks the big questions, that we all seek to know

About the meaning of our lives, and where we all might go

It helps us question what we know, and what we take for granted

And helps us see the world anew, in ways that we had never chanted.

And as we delve into its depths, and ponder all its themes

We find that we are changed within, in ways that are supreme

We find new clarity of thought, and a deeper sense of being

And a greater understanding, of what it is we're seeing.

For philosophy helps us see, the world in a new light

To question our assumptions, and not just take what's in our sight

To explore the boundaries of our minds, and push ourselves to grow

To find the answers to the questions, that we all want to know.

And as we journey on this path, of self-discovery and growth

We find that we are not alone, that others too have troth

That philosophy is a tool, that we all can use with skill

To find the answers that we seek, and help us live with will.

So let us embrace this field, this world of thought and wonder

Let us all be philosophers, and not be held asunder

For in the quest for personal growth, and self-discovery too

Philosophy can be a guide, to help us all renew.
