Ignorance: Man's Willful Folly

Ignorance: Man's Willful Folly

A Chapter by Ethan Paz

A philosophic poem explaining very little about human life. There is a way out of pain and suffering.













Simple and calm

Is the sweet arrest

Of beloved anxiety.


I see you bathing in fear

And you like it.

You feed off of it.

Its delicacy tastes like a tropical strawberry, banana smoothie.













Is the drink bitter?

No? Why do I see your conscience run to and fro?

Is reality actually reality?

Or is reality actually a lie?


Yummm . . . sugar does taste good,

But feel the toothache when left unclean?

The tear wrenching pain will soon follow

Unless . . .

You come to one who cleans all of your pains. 













Ha! No! That is foolish isn’t it?

Is it?

You see,

I’m being allegorical.

How is your life?


Do you feel the worries of daily human life?

Feels like fiction am I right?

Walking day in and day out continually

Till that is, you drop in the dust.

Willful ignorance is a vice, my friend. 

















Extraordinary comes from change

However, I fear some of you are arrested by anxiety.

Come let the Son of God set you free.


This is reality.

Leave it up to Jesus and he will release all your stress and Anxiety and all your sins will be forgiven and you will be set free and you will be free indeed because the Son has set you free.

It explains very little of the world but the questions you ask are the ones that though simple, an average person would not be able to answer.

I kept trying to stare at the banana and strawberry smoothie. It made me hungry. But i loved the poem. It made me feel full of anger, then at the end i was relieved. It was amazing.
