Ignorance Can Be Overcome


You laugh so hard at my ignorant plea

When I admit that I just don’t know

But I must fume as I know what I see

As ignorance you force me to show


Ignorance is but a fact of life

There are many things yet to learn

But you stifle knowledge with your strife

Pleading faith as your wisdom’s turn


But stupidity should never confuse

Ignorance which can be overcome

I learn to grow by accepting news

And striving never to be dumb


So snicker at me for my true claim

That everything is not yet known

And I’ll wish that you will learn the same

When intelligence within you has grown

I am a poet/writer with a hunger for words. There are so many out there that I haven't used yet. They define all reality and especially mine when you read those from me.
