Luke Pere

All Knowing - Poem by Luke Pere

will you know forgiveness
when you get it;
or whispers from the lips
when you see it?

will you know comfort
when you feel it;
or feel sad and rejected
when you are denied it?

do you want to know
how things might end?
how emotions are tested
or how your life will bend?

I wish not to know
now that i see;
now that i feel the ripples
rising through me

Alas what do we live for
for knowing all is tragic;
but being blissful is serene
in a world where I'm not seen

    Forgiveness, comfort, rejection, emotions,
    being blissful is serene
    in a world where I'm not seen... so many points to cogitate...... a very good poem. you are becoming philosophic in your poem and at the end you come to Bliss....... soooo nice dear poet.thank you very much. tony
