The certitude of ignorance
In this poetry I have long lamented
and limitations imposed
by my absolute ignorance,
not for the sake of humility
nor a mere heads up to the reader,
not to hedge my improbable bets
but a disingenuous pretext to explore
the one fixed absolute in my life -
the certitude of ignorance
that it might one day bear fruit,
be turned inside out, laid down
to become the very source and root,
the core of my conviction.
O child of God, embrace your ignorance;
there can be no faith without it.
