is our ignorance.

We humans announce the term “forever”

as if we understand the immense weight of the word.

But us ignorant ones have only existed

in a blink of the eye in the cosmic spectrum.




Time flies by as we live our daily lives.

We assume that we have an accurate concept of time,

but our perspective of time is just by our solar system.

The only natural clock of our existence.



And the solar system is but one of

the single pieces of sand on the beach of unknown.

Forever stands as an inappropriate word.

The only thing that I know will last forever


is our ignorance.

But to me, it’s the result of ignorance.

Have you ever felt like nobody knew,
Whether you were old or new?
Have you ever felt so invisible,
That it seemed almost physically possible?
Have you ever cried so much,
And nobody even saw you do such?
Have you ever tried to do something extraordinary,
So that something might happen out of the usual story?
Have you ever helped someone in their need,
And they soon forgot your deed?
Have you ever wanted to be just seen,
Without being pretty or mean?
Have you ever smiled bright,
But cried yourself to sleep at night?
To some people this might make no sense,
But to me, it’s the result of ignorance.

Knowing is always better than not knowing.
                                                        ­                                               Every
                                                           ­                                                      single
                                                          ­                                                                 time.

Do you think ignorance is truly bliss?

Bliss
Or
Unrest?

Sinking further down into the deep dark... Wondering..
try **ignorance.**
Wíštfûł Wáñdêręr

If you think questioning the world around you
is bad,
try ignorance.

Sometimes ignorance is bliss
Chelsea Daley

Sometimes ignorance is bliss
The kind of ignorance that keeps us from knowing how a hospital smells
Or what the person we love the most truly feels about us
Or what it feels like to say goodbye

But sometimes ignorance is a fire
The kind of ignorance that keeps you from accepting someone
Or the ignorance that puts you at war with those that are suffering
The kind of ignorance that preys on vulnerability

Sometimes curiosity kills ignorance
Takes vengeance on the unknown
Curiosity becoming a crossroad
For which most of us take the road traveled most

Killing beautiful ignorance for good.

a man chooses
a slave obeys
trapped between artificial walls
yet the mind runs free
physically bonded
yet the thoughts are free

a man chooses
a slave obeys

if your mind is free
you are free

I wrap myself in words
And coat them with fantasies
To create a shell that keeps me numb

Does the beta know
About life in other fish bowls

send your prayers to the martyrs wives, ask them if honour matters.
write your letters to the wealthy traitors, ask them if honour matters.
speak to the children of fallen warriors, ask them if honour matters.

stand in the ashes of a thousand dead and ask their ghosts if honour matters.
their silence is your answer

ask yourself if honour matters
