We all are fools in our own ways,
to line the dominoes up
and pretend that they all don’t fall down,
whether they hit each other or not.
But our ignorance is protection.
A shield against the things
that would truly hurt us if we let them
fester for too long,
linger in the critical parts of our mind.
All things knowing seep in between the
cracks of ignorance,
but the true question lies
in whether we patch those cracks up
over and over again
until we lay down,
arm over arm,
or allow the wall to fall.
