Treasure Island

Thousand Voices Of Ignorance.


Im surrounded by poeple with one view
they see the same thing as me
but their minds only go one way
im on the outside
i see what they see
but i dont believe what they believe
im pushed to the side
their minds believe im wrong
its that one view that puts them beind
im an outcast
their narrow minds cant accept that i have a different view
it doesnt help them that im around questioning them
so im pushed to the side
my mind is open
their minds are closed
they are built to be ignorant
and they always will
one voice with a difference
will never beat the thousand voices of ignorance
so im pushed away
laughed at
they consider me to be the narrow minded one
maybe they are right in away
but even though im an outcast
i know my mind questions things
i know when something is new to explore it
my ignorance will get smaller
theirs will grow and never end
its not for me to change them
just to question them
even if im wrong.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
