"I still fall on my face sometimes and I
Can't color inside the lines 'cause
I'm perfectly incomplete
I'm still working on my masterpiece and I
I wanna hang with the greatest gotta
Way to go, but it's worth the wait"

PROMPT: The Unknown

22
I do not know much about the world to be quite frank, 
I shelter myself away from it,
I prefer to read about it instead of seeing it for myself.
I don't always know how to act or what to say
and I definitely don't know most of the things most people know
By scientific standards, I know barely anything of the technicalities,
of how it works, or of the tiny particles that make up the planet
but I do know the world isn't such a big place
I know the sun still shines during the darkest hours
and I know people aren't as different as they appear to be,
I know behind every mask there is a story,
I know that every future is a map and that God is the cartographer.
I know one day I'm going to have to go out and face the world,
be part of it, so to speak,
but until then I'd rather just watch and learn.
