Chasm

A huge chasm
effortlessly seperates
All that could be
from all that is
I stand at the edge
Watching, longing, plotting
to no avail

Giving up all pretense
I finally let go
and take the plunge
Only to firmly land across

Everything but an illusion
All that could be,
All that is
The only thing real
All that ought to be

Interconnected in ways
beyond the realm
of my understanding..

To think that one can understand everything itself is arrrogance (remember reading it somewhere). it has a bit of truth. good read.

I'm just saying that there's a realm of perceived understanding. That itself could be much smaller than we think. :)

Your reply reminds me of Dunning kruger effect.

You made me read up on something new today. Thank you. That said, I didn't know the name but I've observed that behavior quite a few times. Now I have a name to use. :)
