to learn, to know

May 18, 2013 at 10:00 pm 15 comments


there is so much

to know –

so much to learn

to know.

the more i learn,

the more i know


the less i learn,

the less i know.


i work at learning –

to know.


while learning so much,

i come to learn that in knowing so much,

i actually know less

than i should know


could know


there is too much to know


i possibly cannot





inspired by my friend Dom –

    Thank you for the mention Kimberly and I’m glad that you found inspiration in my poem…I think, although I know that I don’t know for sure…maybe. I love the poem it had me laughing and confused at the same time, which is the state I live in most of the time…I think. 🙂

    Ok, so if I understood that perfectly does that mean I know something or I don’t know something? lol I love when you post poem’s like this Kimberly because it makes me slow down in my reading and really ponder what you are saying. xoxo

      I have decided to call these ‘headache poems’. It is my invention – well, not really, but they give me a bit of a headache when i write them and make me dizzy and I get confused…….:)
