Ignorance Is Bliss

So, this isn’t one of my best, that’s for sure. But I thought I’d post it anyway. And you know what they say, to be a writer, you have to be willing to write badly. Hope you enjoy. 🙂

It’s so much easier

To not know

Ignorance is bliss

Because when you don’t know

You can just sit

And keep your mouth shut

But when you know

You know you should keep quiet

Say nothing

But it eats you from the inside out

Climbs up your throat

And pulls at your lips

All the while, a hurricane goes on in your head

Say it!

Don’t say it!

Say it!

Don’t say it!

Say it!

Don’t say it!

And you can’t take it

It’s too much

Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop

And then you say it

Just to get those voices in your head to shut up

But the moment you say it

You’re ashamed

What happened to willpower?

You can’t meet their eyes

Because you know

That you’ll see

They’ve lost respect for you

Poof

Gone.

And you look down

And tell yourself’

Next time, I’ll keep my mouth shut

But the scary part is

You don’t know if you will

    Trust is important, if you are not able to trust yourself, then who can trust you? This is the question……. makes one wonder how many have trusted you only to get tangled in your web unknowingly
