We teach the best by stumbling

in ways we thought we knew,

and stubbing toes on drywall till

we find the way to stalk.

The cleanly path, the painful-less

that smooths its way around

like silken shoes is bound to lose

the strength of real and talk.

And so we strive to go the way

that never skips a cross

that lays like grace in all our ways

and privileges our walk.
