Know Thy Self Poem/Proverb

A copy of this ancient Egyptian poem/proverb was given to me last Saturday at the Words with Wings Open Mic (at Sankofa Cafe). Just thought I’d share…

Know Thy Self Poem/Proverb

A person who knows not
And knows not that they know not
Is foolish – disregard them

A person who knows not
And knows that they know not
Is simple – teach them

A person who knows not
And believes that they know
Is dangerous – avoid them

A person who knows
And knows not that they know
Is asleep – awaken them

A person who knows
And knows that they know
Is wise – follow them

All of these persons reside in you
Know Thy Self
And to Maat be true

 

Peace,
