Ignorance

There comes a time
When one must realize
When to break free
When to cut ties
*****
Ignorance is bliss
But I’m not built that way
I wish I could forget all
And start a new day
*****
However, if I did have ignorance
Kept it by my side
I wouldn’t feel shame
I’d have nothing more to hide
*****
If I lived with ignorance
Could I still rise?
Could I still love?
Or would it be my demise?
*****
In the end
It’s what we can see
What engulfs us
Is what we believe
