I know my onions
24 x 34 cm
Acrylic, conte crayon, pencil & ballpoint pen on collage
I know what I know but I would like to know more
My mind needs stimulation, development and growth
Hungry for knowledge and learning the most
There is always something else to know
The wonders will never cease
Every day is a school day but I know you don’t understand
Your brain is full your thoughts are mud and you never will
Things which I investigate and dissect with my question
A challenge my reasons are apparent
