Wandering Scarlet

You Dont Want To Know

knowing is not knowing
every question answered
is two more un-answered
its keeps going but never stops
so now what do you know
a ton of useless information
that ends up giving you a headache
the less you know
the more you think you know
and that is how discovery becomes futile

    great write. and it is so true. for there are always questions without answers. you may think you know enough but you never can.
