I Don’t Know

I was gratified to be able to answer promptly, and I did. I said I didn’t know. ~ Mark Twain

We don’t know everything
but we feel obligated to answer,
to know the course not only for us
but for our children, employees,
those we supervise.
It feels wrong at times not to know
especially if in times past
we’ve taken on our shoulders
to manage the whole world.
If you need to know
there are ways to find out
but before you try to manage a life
be sure it’s yours.
