One day I changed my mind and stopped,
Stopped thinking, talking and just stood.
For I realised in the time gone by
I should have waited and just looked.
I didn’t move, I didn’t speak,
And the less I spoke, the more heard,
The more I heard the more I learned,
The more I learned the more I knew.
People came and people went,
But I just watched them on their way,
I heard their voices, saw their ways
But didn’t move, and didn’t stray.
But then it seemed to change,
It seemed too fake,
And the more I saw, the less I knew,
The less I knew, the less I cared.
All I had seen, all I had learnt,
Did not matter anymore.
And I shook my head, and cleared my thoughts,
And I continued on my way.
