I'm tired of spending time with the know-it-alls
The one's who always have an answer
To the mysteries of life
The ones who can so quickly
Regenerate some spiritual cliché
To fend off the silence
Give me the ones who can sit with the unknown
Let's exchange our questions
And sit without answers
To all those uncomfortable feelings
Let's join together
To welcome each other as we are
Not trying so desperately
To "awaken" one another to the "truth"
If "everything is conscious"
As you so love to rattle off
What's wrong with sadness, anger, and loneliness?
What's the problem with these unique movements of life?
Why constantly try to correct
These "unenlightened" experiences?
Where are those who can share their vulnerability?
Where are those who have the courage
To admit they don't have answers?
Where are those who know
How to welcome all expression of life?
Wherever you are, Thank You!
Thank you for listening patiently.
Thank you for sharing yourself so openly.
Thank you for welcoming people as they are.
You inspire me.
I hope our paths cross one day dear friends
And we can enjoy the silent unknown together.
