Ignorance is Bliss

Sometimes I really wonder if ignorance is bliss,
Or maybe it’s just being distracted with something like a kiss,
When I see children and the smiles that they always contain,
I wonder if being unaware of the tragedies is the only way to be sane,
I guess thoughts like this is why people start to stray from the path,
I should probably try to escape to something safer like a soothing bath,  
But I can’t help but wonder if being more aware of things as life goes on is putting me in more of a sadness,
Or maybe overthinking is the reason for my madness?
