You can always borrow wisdom, you know--
Don't feel you have to figure it all out.
Surely you know someone whose thoughts about
This question you trust, eager to bestow
Her sage advice on your receptive heart.
Excuse yourself for not being all-wise
Embrace another's wisdom in the guise
That it appears; suffice it that you're smart
Enough to recognize in whom to vest
The sacred trust that only you can grant.
Your willingness to let her voice supplant
Your own is fact sufficient to attest
Your worthiness and faith. So now you must
Put doubt aside, let fate reward your trust.

-- JJM (#4 in the I Ching Sonnet Project)
