" where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise "

thank god
he gifted you
with ignorance,
so you’ll never
have to
the need to
starve yourself
and the driving
to drag a razor
across your skin.
thank him that
you do understand
who you are
because not everyone
does, they only
know pills and blades
and bullets and rooftops
(i guess this is
what they mean
when they say
ignorance is
bliss )

Just try to start counting your blessings for a change, maybe then you'll see how lucky you really are.

Poetry is the soundtrack to my life, the lyrics are my thoughts accompanied by the melody of my emotions.

I really appreciate you sharing what it means to see the world from other perspectives and I can definitely relate to this! So beautiful because it is honest!
