Leaving room for disagreement

Isn’t the same
As not having confidence in your position,
Its recognizing
That the world is bigger than you
And has people in it that may have
Better and brighter ideas
Than your own.
The quintessential leader
Who always looks like they are in the know
And scorns at even the shadow of a doubt
May get our early support
But if they can’t make room
For a difference of opinion
We may one day find ourselves
Imprisoned by the same
Unwavering certainty
We once found so endearing.
