Where ignorance is bliss
… where ignorance is bliss, / ‘Tis folly to be wise.*

Informed about the choices,
the mainstay o’ adulthood,
we often smother voices;
in good stead, they have stood.
Grapple with, analyse 
a destination grim:
a web of intrigue; lies
which we quote verbatim.
Some opportunities

Ignorance is bliss
What if we knew
Where things would go
The depth of dysfunction 
To come as we grow

What if looking back 
Was, instead, up ahead
Once, witnessed, the pain
We’d become filled with dread

Could we handle the truth
Right there in one sitting
Would our destined commitments
Still...Read More

Ignorance is Bliss
The wispy trees roll by
row by row.
The gentle breeze of the air conditioning 
brushes against my cheeks
In the bright blue sky swallows sing freely

A meadow lies in peace.
Pure and holy.
Beautiful beyond belief
only nature can nurture such peace
away from our motions...Read More

A mind decays
Hope is woefully unknown. 
Dreams that last while I’m awake. 
My mind unstable and unsure. 
If I could see inside your head,
What would I find?
Is everything like you say?
Will everything be okay?
They say ignorance is bliss,
But I say it’s a...Read More

Premium Member The Dual
In singular, in blissful ignorance,
I happily existed in advance
of tasting blithely an ambiguous kiss.

My dear singularity, intact
complacent wholesomeness, what have they done:
a sweet saliva, a Chrysostom tongue,
the lips, a bit thin lips, to be exact,
a tricky smile, a quick eye...Read More

Knowledge is a skill you have to acquire
Understanding the way the world work
It something in life that every human require

But there's something that's call stating fact

No one will blend things
Into the bittersweet truth.
When everyone worships
Different things…
They bring in warships.

I Have Heard
I have heard that
“Ignorance is bliss!”--then
why so many unhappy people?
Heard that “love is blind!”--
but have seen few service dogs
at weddings: And which came first?
I think the adage and not
the people...for surely
no conscious writer
would imagine such--
and no fine poet
would retrieve one

If Ignorance is Bliss, Then Knowing is Utopian
When I hear the saying “Ignorance is bliss” 
It only makes me think that it is only temporary

In reality it is only knowledge that gives a true feeling that...Read More

To Be Blissfully Ignorant, Or Not To Be
To be aware is to know 
that I will be cared, feared, & sneered; 
But Ignorance is not knowing 
neither who, what, or where!
My awareness can move like a shifting gear!
My thoughts slowly get hazy, 
& suddenly become clear.
