"Some books should be tasted
some devoured, but only a few
should be chewed and digested thoroughly" -Excerpt from the Inkheart


Is it worth never seeing the truth?

To be internally blinded by lies?

Is it worth being oblivious to what is said?

To be a robot in an assembly line completely brainwashed?

Was it worth losing yourself to blend in with the crowd?

To always live a lie never breaking out from that shell that hides you?

Will you never see from your Ignorance that you can be an individual?

Perhaps even cable of your own thoughts, decisions, and life?

Or have I come too late & the bliss of Ignorance has spread to your heart?


The author's comments:
My focus here was to write about a topic that is very relevant to our world as is. I believe this poem is a strong representation of how people have become ignorant of the greater problems in life.
