On knowledge, its creation, and its possession

We don’t create knowledge
for they have been created
long before our soul was breathed

.

But some people proclaim knowledge as what they make
insisting that there is no knowledge without humans’ effort to partake

.

Yet, we still don’t know what we know

.

When we claim we know,
we are granted a vision to see its appearance
and when we say we don’t know,
there is a veil that blocks its glowing brilliance

.

To lift the veil we must make an appeal
to the maker of that very veil
and this means admitting our not knowing
and surrendering to the All-Knowing

.

Knowledge flow from those who know
to those who stay low
if it’s humility that we sow
perhaps our Lord will make our knowledge grow
