Just To Know

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Just to know,
Is not enough.
Just to know,
Can make life tough.
Just to know,
And not get up...
To move from what,
Can enclose and not grow...
From that which one knows.

Too many are not willing to listen.
And with patience sit.
Too many are not willing to comprehend,
Or admit misunderstanding.

Too many are not willing to listen.
And with patience sit.
Too many rather fake it to pretend,
Asking questions has no benefit for them.

Just to know,
Is not enough.
Just to know,
Can make life tough.
Just to know,
And not get up...
To move from what,
Can enclose and not grow...
From that which one knows,
Is not enough.
Just to know,
Can make life tough.
Just to know,
And not get up...
To move from what,
Can enclose and not grow...
From that which one knows.

Comments about Just To Know

Inspiring work. The wisdom of all times connects the two States of Knowing and then standing up for what is known. Human evolution of the spirit is about our collective change of state from having known to having stood up. Delighted to read your poem Lawrence.
