Poetry Corner | Ignorance Is Bliss Written By Samantha James

I wrote a new poem titled Ignorance Is Bliss. This one just sort of entered my thoughts one day at my desk. It is meant to express how ignorance is not always bliss and knowing the truth is often the better of the two. I hope you enjoy!

Ignorance Is Bliss

Ignorance is bliss: That is the belief
It won’t save me from the abyss
Too easily dismissed
Too easily deceived
Carrying my heart on my sleeve
Ignorance is bliss: That is remiss
This is not easy to admit
The eyes already know
There is nowhere to go
The truth is not to be missed
Ignorance is bliss: That is the message
It is a deadly passage
Carrying its own baggage
Creating a world of damage
Landing in a heap of wreckage
Ignorance is bliss: That is fraudulence
It won’t save me from the consequence
It was all false confidence
The truth is bottomless
The lies Profitless
