The Room with Red Chairs

The Room with Red Chairs

This is where we read history,
And meet the great and the terrible.
This is where we look for truth and sometimes
find maybes.
This is where we build ideas,
and offer them to each other.

I am not here to teach you…
I hope I don’t shock you…but…
I am not here to teach you.
I am here to take journeys with you…to fly with you…
to ask questions,
and to learn with you.

What I teach you, you will forget.
What you seek…
behind bookshelves,
and under red chairs,
This is what you will remember.

I am not here to teach you.
I will show you
boats and sails,
hopes and sorrows,
pearls and secrets long forgotten.

And…then you will teach yourself.
