Un`knowing

by Peter Notehelfer

There are things

that if we knew them

we would feel differently

than the way we feel

about those things 

There is power

in such un`knowing

Since by knowing more we

feel no better than we

feel un`knowingly

There is folly

in all un`knowing

when we choose it But

wisdom often hides

in the un`known

There in the

un`knowing fools

walk on water where

physicians drown

in understanding

  1. not to mention the unknowable

  2. A lot of things to think about in your poem, but not knowing which one first, i’ll give it a by-ball 🙂

  3. I especially liked “wisdom often hides in the un’ known”. Imagine the confusion were it not so.
