I May Be Wrong
I may be wrong but I’ll say it anyway
surely that is the point.
Jung’s theory of circumambulation says
“Give it a go”
Follow that glimmering thing
that interests you
down the path of development.
Heed the call to adventure
let new parts of you manifest.
Be the fool as precursor to
the Jedi master.
It’s an error ridden process
to venture on as interests dawn.
Progress is punctuated by pitfalls
as you learn what you shouldn’t do
before concluding what you should.
Unlearning is painful and here
Nietzche leaps in demanding
a will to stupidity.
Take those tentative steps
each moving away from the starting point
leading you to a new more focused
reject all that you’ve been told,
discover your authenticity
or roll over.
Join the paralysed ponderers
waiting for a perfect idea,
a less stupid idea.
Waiting for a perfect opportunity
to present itself…
until you rot to dust and fade away.
So don’t stop.
Move a little further along the path.
Don’t stop learning.
to be the best that you can be.
