So Little About Life I Can - Poem by Francis Duggan

Though i have traveled far from where the Blackwater flow
So little about life i can claim for to know
Yet from the book of life we do learn every day
We never stop learning it does seem this way
Close to forty years past my physical prime
And so much to learn in so little time
And the more i do learn the more i realize
That of life i know little is this a surprise
Though in reality many may think their world is small
I do envy those who think they know it all
Suppose to think you know so much you would feel okay
Ignorance can be bliss as the wise one does say
Of life so little i do know i have come to realize
And this in itself should not seem a surprise.
