A Teen On Not Knowing - Poem by Wesongah David

I don't know,
I said I don't know,
And how would I know?
If you never told me anyway,
But told me I know instead?

    This made me smile. You capture a bit of the spirit of a teen on the edge of leaving the nest, knowing but not knowing, questioning everything, a bit angry, a bit challenging.

    Thank you for posting this.
