I Thought I Knew?!

I Thought I Knew?!

I continued on my path, not knowing I was lost
I felt pride when I slipped through the blazes and frost
Much of my time was building a city with all the blocks I’ve been around
Now I’ve run into glimmering tracks that used to be my pathway ground
What a condition to be helplessly guided along
I could have manipulated my path but this steal is too strong
My mind is more vulnerable; its allegiance has changed
Feeling at all times I need to be rearranged
My untested, mistakable notion of wisdom lashed back
It reminded me of my many shortcomings during this attack
The detestable gases that seeped through my lips formed Sodom
Gomorrah soon followed as my evils built a rock bottom
I thought
I really thought
Damn It! I truly thought!
I thought I knew so much
I went this far using rhetoric as a crutch
Now I ask, is wisdom for real?
Is faking knowledge that big of a deal?
I witnessed so many others with Halos, appearing so wise
In discussions with them I found much to despise
What is to gain by others applause?
Is it not so honorable to accept simply because?
Longwinded showboats quickly run out of steam
Is innocent beauty only a childhood dream?
Wisdom is knowing you know nothing at all
Claiming you do sets up your fall
Be opened to others who share understandings with you
Its changed my perspective, now I’ve seen a bit clearer not claiming I KNEW!
