The truth It Is, I Do not Know

On a day. I’m sitting here
And I am all alone
 I ask a lot of questions
Though answers can’t be known
No scientists, priests, nor leaders 
They have the answers really
Just like us they are just creatures
That’s what I say sincerely

All those folk who say ‘I’m right!!!’
And think they really know
They really know nothing, at all
They have no special glow
Then all the wars will fade on out
And peace will come along
For when one does not know at all
Who can then be wrong??

If we drop stupidity
And shout out ‘I don’t know!’
Because my friends you really don’t
Tis then you’ll start to glow
Then your love might shine so bright
And folk will cling together
For no one knows and this is true
Then peace will live forever

What made me really smile about this is that Poetry Soup has the category "I do not know" and I have used it. I thought this is where you were going. I like your poem a lot. I never have any idea; I can barely pour a bug out of my shoe. If there is anyone who does not know it is I.

Hi Caren I remember reading Lao Tzu where he said [Those who say they know, know nothing]. This was when this know-all became a know nothing LOL That's the trouble in this world, everyone wants to be right. Thank you, my friend for your kind comments. I reckon you know plenty when it comes to wisdom. Have a wonderful day, my friend....Peter

In the big scheme of things we know very little.
