lessons for a young grasshopper

 

Just how much silence

must I have before I can

finally begin to hear?

 

Listening is not

what we can hear, as much as

it’s how we pay attention.

 

And how do I learn

to pay attention like you,

when all I hear is just noise?

 

The noise is within,

so try shutting up for once

listen twice, speak once, that’s all.
