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

One thought on “Ignorance

  1. Hi Diana,

    This is a really heartfelt poem.
    I’ve felt similar to this at times. Sometimes having a greater awareness seems to be more pain than its worth. The greater awareness though I think despite the pain gives you more choice. Ignornace just leave running around in circles but never never knowing that you are or why.
    I think you’re better for knowing then never having known.
    This is a really nice piece. It gets you thinking.
    Thankyou for sharing.
