If you just listen...



I don't often get to share my opinions.  I study and work and try to find a few seconds to exchange pleasantries with co-workers.  I am lost in my responsibilities, always overwhelmed, always just making it through.  I've learned in the past few weeks how special it is to have someone listen.  I've spoken and now I can sit back and listen again.  I return to my safe place, to what I know, where risk is putting dinner before homework...  I will listen. I think that if do not listen I won't ever have anything worthwhile to say.

After I spoke, I was emptied of so much thought and want and there was nothing more than to savor the emptiness, but for the briefest of moments I had felt more... then I listened and what was a laugh turned into a simple knowing smile.  Ahhhhh, the silly things that give people their power...  power.... perceived power...borrowed power, vicarious power....
