    dotsWhat I Know.dots
    -------------------------------------------


    I only know what I've
    Read,
    Seen,
    Been told.

    So therefore,
    I don't know
    What I don't know.

    I like to lie.
    I don't know why.

    It seems to give me
    A false sense of
    Honor,
    Decency,
    Pride.

    I suppose,
    I want to see the looks
    Spread upon their faces.
    It seems almost as if they
    Are giving me their graces.
    Telling things
    I've never done.
    I feel like a winner,
    Who has never won.

    After all those feelings have faded,
    I am left with nothing
    And I don't know what to do.

    I'm always after what my parents hated.
    I don't recommend lying.
    It really eats up inside of you.

      This does have a good message and reminds me of someone in particular out of my past. I think it was half a fantasy thing and the other half a control thing. Except for the lies it might have lasted, would have lasted, but at some point one gives up.

      at times i would like to see stronger wording in this...but love the idea.

    we always know less than we think we know...and the more we learn, the more we understand that we have so much more to learn...

    might play with the language a bit...some of the rhyming seems contrived...as if the phrasing were manipulated a bit too much...

    really like the second stanza...and "i feel like a winner who has never won"
