Lost Wonder

I have slowly lost my wonder as I've grown
Some has gone due to learning that magic doesn't make the leaves change color, science does
Other has gone from watching the news, seeing the troubles of the world and just how cruel humans can be

Yes, I have slowly lost my wonder
Yet I've gained it back as well

Wonder gained when I learn a new fact
Wonder gained when a child tells me Santa came
Wonder gained when someone has captured a peaceful scene and shown there is still beauty in this wonder-less world

I have slowly lost my wonder
But I am getting it back piece by piece.
