The downfall of knowledge

Surrounded by knowledge I feel at home
The joy of knowing questions have answers
A purpose
I've lived my life through this knowledge
Never venturing to far into the unknown
Always wanting the upper hand
Needing to know there was a purpose
An answer
I'd peruse through books
Accepting what was said as truth
Believing love was a fairy tale
Friendship forever
And no problem couldn't be solved between two covers
Reality has a funny way, I've learned
Of jading that innocence
Leaving me unsure of all I've held dear
All the knowledge I've aquired
Causing me to accept that only data and fairy tales
Are hiding between those covers
The Knowledge that I've relied on
Has left me bare and exposed
Unable to process anything without an answer
A purpose
Yet in reality
Nothing seems to have that purpose
That answer

  this is freaking cool. i liked it and also i can relate to it because you reach a point where you realize not every book has the answer, not all situations can have the same formula to rely on... good poem. great concept.
