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
