The certitude of ignorance

The certitude of ignorance

In this poetry I have long lamented
specific encumbrances

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.
