What We Thought We Thought We Knew

Remember that moment when we knew
We knew not what we swore we knew?

It was far beyond our grasp,
Trivial discrepancies,
Sentiments that would not last;
Things we thought we ought to know
Were frozen in our past.

In that moment we came to know
That what we knew was never known,
And what we never knew
We could never come to know.

Far beyond our reach,
A Formal knowledge never known;
Up above our heads,
There lay a light that’s never shone.

Remember that time we timed our thoughts
And found our thoughts were off?
What about that time we thought
Our time was just a thought
And our time really mattered not?

We just thought we knew the thoughts we had;
We truly thought we knew our minds.
What we surely knew was that our thoughts
Were something we would never find
Without knowing that we knew
What we thought there was to know
But really, did we even know what we thought we knew?
