ignorare
A myriad of staring eyes
questions, answers,
truths and lies
Comprehensions varied so
the muddled mix
of yes and no
A solid wall, an overt floor
the kept shut out
the open door
Happiness, the pealing laugh,
wounds not mortal
full of wrath
Gazing wonder, ignorance
can you see it?
not a glimpse...

No, that's not true,
it's there,
you see it,
but never hear,
no never,
here.
Unless you do,
and do not speak it,
for that strange
human reason
you have.
Am I alone,
or in fact the
object
of ignorance?
And walk around
with thoughts distempered,
uncertain,
perhaps what I percieve
as you?
It cannot be
that you are closed
to things I've known
since thoughts
began.
Or is it me,
closed off somehow,
to something more
that you
have grasped?
For ignorance is
simple, yet
complicated so,
human's core,
the heart of much,
and so its own
downfall...

The functions of the human mind
the freedom there
that we do bind
The depth with which an eye can reach
but sealed off tight
where none can breach
Priorities in the wrong place;
find a purpose
give it face
The possibilities there are
those 'lost' chances
not so far
Gazing wonder, ignorance
can you see it?
not a glimpse...

Well-written and graceful. Just like moonrose.

This is an interesting piece posing as many questions as suggesting answers. What is ‘open’ to some is ‘closed’ indeed to others – tunnel vision. We do ‘all’ see through our ‘own’ rose-colored glasses – don’t we? “The reference point I’ve yet to see…, whose more ‘crazy’… them, or me?” Very thought provoking Kayles. Nice jub

All together, well-put verses that reminded me of the world in which we live. Could not have said that better myself.

Education is the best, when you keep learning you will learn. I have a saying: Ignorance is the key to failure! this a very great poem:)
