The Illusion of Knowing (Poem)

The illusion of knowing prevents us from learning
Stops us from growing
Voids all we have

When we project what we know
we crash into each other
and damage control becomes the problem at hand

Not knowing enables connection
Curiosity yields new growth
Humility conjures the empath inside
And empathy is pride’s antidote

We don’t know
that we don’t know
what we don’t know

We can’t find
what we don’t know
that we don’t have

No one can fill a cup that is full
And nobody knows everything
