Welcome the Questions

What is it that scares us
so much about questions?

Not asking a question
does not make the answer
less true.

If something is
becoming obsolete,
an inquiry does nothing
to prevent.

What is it that makes us
think we can control by
suppressing curiosity?

Curiosity not expressed
does not disappear.

Rather it closes down potential
for connection
for open exploration
for mutual understanding.

Instead of silencing questions,
invite them,
welcome them,
sit with them,
hold space for them,

and let them show you
and wonder
and truth
that control could
never find.
