I DO NOT KNOW
You ask if I know
Am I sure
My answer
Is no
I do not know

I walk on ice
Is it strong enough
To hold my weight
I do not know

I jump off high places
Flap my wings
Can I fly
I do not know

I wet my brush
Dip it into paint
Will it be a masterpiece
I do not know

Is the color “right”
I do not know

Is it a worthy thing to do
I do not know

It is because I do not know
I travel with confidence
I take a chance
I reach beyond what I know
My answer is now
And will always be
“I do not know”
