poem- opinion twist April 22, 2014

I thought

t’was so simple:

It’s not like that;

It’s like this.

But I’m reading

and discovering,

there’s information

I’ve missed.

It’s quite a bit

like that, surely

but it’s also

like this.

That’s a problem

with learning

one cannot dismiss,

Neither black, nor white,

it’s one

    Sink or swim, but don’t drown… Information multiplies as knowledge increases on and about our past, present and futures, it’s a huge sliding scale, but in terms of the universe, it’s still relatively small. Don’t get lost in the abyss, Shawn.
