Some days I am cognizant
of the fact there are things I’ll never know.
I recognize even if there is no grim prognosis
to halt my attempts at progress,
or some other misfortune
no prognostication could forestall,
I will reach my limit.
And if pressed, I must admit
a certain level of agnosticism.
In that respect, my knowledge
most assuredly has its limitations.
Yet I remain hopeful,
even within the limits of my cognizance.
I may never be a cognoscente
of every subject that fascinates me.
I may never acquire the gnosis of the ages.
But I will enjoy my quest for cognition,
and trust in the knowledge I find along the way.
