Listen and silent are spelled with the same letters

To do one you must be the other

in the still small moments you can learn much

about others about yourself about life

be quiet and concentrate your hearing

close your eyes and focus only on the sounds

shut down your thoughts just let the noises pass over you

through you inside of you let them linger

let them speak to you what are they saying

with everyone today let them speak

listen be silent and know them

meet them truly

if you let someone speak long enough

they reveal everything about themselves

without even knowing

be silent and listen

to understand
