Be learned

To everything I don't know,
I gain a moments freedom,
With everything I won't show,
I slip away into boredom,
I shrink for I fail to glow,
Loosing true specks of wisdom,
But now that I seek respect,
No one sees my true prospects,
No more will I be naive,
I will be rich like a bee-haive,
No more will I hide knowledge,
For I will not loose my egde,
Love of others I will earn,
