    What we know
    we don't know
    is no excuse
    to give up
    and refuse to grow.

    What we don't know
    we don't know
    is often stuff hiding behind
    our self-delusion.

    Or, perhaps we really can't know,
    Anymore than a mosquito
    understands arithmetic.

    At some point,
    humility will begin,
    unless ego thwarts
    an honest look within.

    You can recognize
    those with humility.

    They can be found
    sitting enthralled by a
    simple sunset.

    Or in the corner of their eye,
    you will see a tiny tear,
    the jewelry of humility.

    Or just sitting in solitude
    with a slight upturned
    grin.

    Because they are at peace
    with knowing their not knowing.

    And have chosen to take a stand
    anyway.

           

    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.
