A stone is always a stone
An idea is a seed
Believe in YOU
You are an unconditional truth
Have you noticed?
Waiting room clocks are LOUD!
So are the people who pass outside the door.
Why does the time go so slowly?
And why do the passing conversations seem so trivial?
Putting these things to one side for the moment
The big question is…
Will it actually be worthwhile
Spending this part of my life HERE?
Confusing to the ear
Brightly tinkling chatter
Dull, no longer clear
Silent slippery sentences
Using lips to lend a clue
Shattered to staccato
Once they’re not in view
Sorry, I didn’t catch that
Say it once more, please
I’m deaf not daft, but sadly
Words are like Swiss cheese
If opinion is divided,
Consensus not in sight.
Head and heart may disagree,
But both cannot be right
Bring to bear one measure;
The final acid test.
Belief may be convincing,
But evidence is best.
This world is happening around you
Though logic says that for others this is true
Those others cannot share your senses
The same world but through different lenses
Others may walk on your stage for a time
With bit-parts; though few may be prime
They, like those you pass in your car
Unaware that you are the star
For those you affect with your actions
Fates changed by your common transactions
Never knowing the one point of view
That’s exclusively experienced by you.
