Flow Radio: To Know

Sometimes we pretend to know.
I know, I know, it might seem ridiculous. In what universe could you possibly conceive in which I "pretend" to know.

White lies wide enough to cover canyons. Wide enough to build bridges. Wide enough to even fit the meaning of our entire existence in the span of a single breath. To hope is to pretend to know. For there is no moral failing in a little bit of shame.

However what is it when we "pretend" to not know. For this is the same as tacit acceptance. Tender cruelties inflicted upon others just a little bit more than ourselves. What we "pretend" to not know, parades itself as bloody donning the skin of innocence. Whose vile truth is made plain in front of a mirror. Willful ignorance, the anathema of goodness.

To know or not to know?
