Sticking to the theme of philosophy, Devereaux Frazier and Beth Amanda from Go Dog Go Cafe challenged us to write a piece using the words, “I never knew.” What a great prompt to get philosophical with!
I never knew –
Such depths to ponder –
I had no clue –
As my mind did wander
Is it all just shadows on the wall?
Did Plato make – any sense at all?
Are ethics just a thing we make?
A response to society’s past mistakes?
I never knew there was so much to take in –
I’m finding it hard to even begin –
Aristotle, Spinoza, Hobbs, and Hume –
Makes me want to hide in my room
But big questions I’ll find – even there –
Is time relative – or the same everywhere?
Does the image I see in the mirror –
Make my understanding of self any clearer?
I never knew
How hard it could be –
So I’ll just give up –
And watch TV
