Knowledge, it’s full extent,
Spread it farther than it touches,
Stretch it, pull it, full extent,
But what of understanding is
Found without a knowledge within.
Take care of our own.
But since all need to learn
We could all learn together.
Combining truth from past experience,
Adding wisdom along the way,
For a world is full of opinions
And few are what we like,
Yet knowledge will remind us
To tolerate their ideas
Be patient with their trespasses
We carry similar burdens that cannot go unknown.
Allow all wrongs righted,
Push understanding through compromise,
Find the spots where we agree
But don’t forget where we are apart,
Tolerate the different that we don’t understand,
Ask about the conflicts that go against our truths.
All to gain the happiness,
Be content then when we know
