Our Knowledge It Is Limited - Poem by Francis Duggan

From life we will be learning until the day we die
And that applies to everyone just not to you and I
For sixty years of living little knowledge I have to show
And the more we learn from living the less about life we know we know,
The school-children of the fifties are showing their years in gray
And from life they are still learning just a little every day
For to know everything there is to know our brains seem far too small
And one could live for forever and still not know it all
From living and life's experiences our depth of knowledge grow
But as we age we do realize that we still have some way to go
Before our depth of knowledge can be considered great
And our learning time is limited on us a use by date
Our knowledge it is limited though some otherwise pretend
And from life we will be learning until our very end.
