Wisdom

Abby

Listening
is the key to understanding


if we seal our lips and open our ears
we could learn


a sharp knife slicing through a thin string
we cut them off in the middle of their sentence


interrupting them
like rain on a sunny day


don’t just look at the whole forest
look at every tree instead


wisdom only comes
to those who listen
