Trembling with Ignorance
By Elisha L., Grade 9, Fredericton High, Fredericton, NB

Your intentions for me
are difficult to contemplate
I'd rather just pretend,
Pretend your opinion does not exist
But in my choosing to ignore you,
there lies a certain risk.
I do not wish to hear
what you have to say
But I find myself listening anyway
Your mental capacity I underestimate,
And when you are right about something;
Hate begins to generate.
Hate for all the things you know
That I do not want to hear.
And all the things I do not know?
This is my greatest fear.
