Learn - Poem by Eliza Nahayo

I am not afraid that I do not know,
I am fear that I might not know and not know;
I dread to drown in blissful ignorance,
I want to know the discomforts of my ignorance;
I want to learn, for I must.

To have more questions than answers,
To let my mind wonder without a care;
To thirst for what fills the minds of others
To fill my own vacuum of knowledge;
I want to learn because I must.
