All knowledge is as incomplete
as counting. We may feel replete
for moments, yet we sense an endless more –
A crowded space made insecure
by promises with Dare’s allure.
Misgiving mirrors needs we can’t ignore.
Our doubts demand an honest guide
to lead us past restricting pride.
Humility helps dent our own defense.
On stepping stones we cross a swift
and rising stream of awe, and lift
our eyes to viewpoints stripped of all pretense.
In tasting new ideas we find
an attitude of filtered mind,
increasing Understanding’s magnitude.
Creating new directions with
more consciousness of what was myth –
this challenge will be constantly renewed.
