I Don’t Know

In the event that life happens



you are not prepared

don't feel bad

nor ashamed


no one is really


When it shouldn't

it will


When it should

it won't


In the event that life happens

because it will



it won't make any sense


those that seem like they have it figured out


they have something figured out but not the it

Not the thing you think they know


those that tell you they have it figured out


A lie is the only thing they have figured

getting you to believe it is their purpose


it is true


Some know more than others

it's usually never the people you think

it's usually the people that are quiet

it's usually the people called old


but then

life is funny sometimes


the loud hot-headed youth

Riding on the back of truth

with discernment in their ears

Righteousness on their tongue

dispensing wisdom lasting ages

dispensing wisdom creating ages


as for me
