On Scepticism

Belief is limitless; Knowing limited.
What we know is a tiny ring.
What we don’t know, an infinite ring.
In the Age of Knowing and the Age of Realism
People forget the most important thing
What’s not real is what’s most real
What’s not proven needs no proof
In our existence
lies only a shadow of reality
There are no answers in the shadows.
But perceived superiority
Arrogance
and Ignorance
Spread like poison from a wound 
Dismissing claims, for they can’t comprehend
that a beginning will not always entail an end:
“That person’s reality is different to mine!
Ghosts and ghouls aren’t real! It’s all in their mind!
They must be suffering from some mental decline!”
And always, the crazy quietly states:
“Mental decline I may have, but my thoughts stay the same
I understand you, but you cannot know me
Because your mind is trapped, you won’t let it be free.”
This cycle is a blockage to harmony.
Lack of belief lies to lack of reason
So sceptics stand on the edge of a knife
While others, they accept one infallible thing:
“Only this I know for sure
I know nothing in this life.”

About skyespitfire

I tend to describe myself in several different ways when asked: 1) A tiger in the Chinese Zodiac. 2) A tornado that sweeps through people's lives. 3) A fed-up misanthropist who ironically has oodles of compassion for her fellow man. Aside from that, I am also 27 years old and based in London, England.
