A Poem by Akira

Ignorance is on the path to failure.

Inflicting pain upon my heart and soul
Go ahead and tell me you love me.
Nobody tells you ignorance will harm you, but ignorance isn't bliss
Open your mind and maybe you'll understand why my heart isn't whole.
Rotting, you'll lie restless and as silent as you ever could be
And not once will I turn to you and whisper I love you and seal it with a kiss.
Not this time will I be so blinded by the truth that I lose my self-control.
Come now, let me set you free
Even if I know that I will lay here to reminisce.
