i never knew

i never knew how little i knew
until i was faced with all that i don’t.

    i haven’t faced it all
                not yet
    but it waits
        lurks
            seeks the opportune moment to strike
    it blindsides me

i feel i’ve learned something and all that i don’t presents itself
    looms large before me and dwarfs my meager knowledge in the shadow of my ignorance
