What We Know


How do we live
with what we know
the things that we hear
the things that people say
some of it right
some of it wrong
some of it only God knows
why we know

We are a mine of infomation
always in the know
we are walking encyclopedias
and we just don't know
one day we will realise how we can grow
with what we know

    Enjoyed reading this. True we are never able to use all that we know. We keep collecting new information and at the same time forgetting the old things. (Report) Reply

    How true! Yes one day will come for us to change the world with it of course the actual very odd education system. Indeed we need to learn from each other for free, to share the best of each of us should be only normal. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
