I love to teach
I love to share
I love to encourage
I love to hear myself speak truth
I love to proclaim
I love to say what I know,
Knowing what I know
May change in the next moment.
I know so much that I don’t know,
Not knowing no longer frightens me,
Not knowing forms the ground of any knowing I might claim.
I know, too, that you know
Far more than you admit.
I want to be the one you tell it to, finally, or
For the first time.
No longer threatened by your knowing, or your not knowing.
Hiding what we know is selfish
Denying what we know is foolhardy
Ignoring what we know is perilous
Forcing what we know is arrogant
Gratitude for what we know is security.
