We Know Not That We Know Not - Poem by Qiniso Mogale

We know not what tomorrow holds
We know not what the future holds
We know not a lot of things
More often we know not what we should know
We know not what is harmful
We know not what is useful
Sadly we know not that We know not.

More often we know not what we should speak
We know not when we must be silent
We know not when to take decisions
We know not when to remain still
We know not that our intelligence is limited
We know not that our wisdom is lacking
Sadly we know not that we know not.

More often we know not that careless words always
come back to bite the careless talker
We know not how many people we've murdered with our uncontrollable tongues
We know not the number of people we've hurt
We know not the number of hearts we've broken
We know not the dreams we've shattered
Sadly we know not that we know not.

More often we know not just how short life is
We know not that We are the ones destroyed by bitterness
We know not that We are the ones destroyed by in forgiveness
We know not that seeking revenge ultimately destroys us
Sadly we know not that we know not
Sadly we know not that we know not.
