Watch and Learn

I sit
watching
taking it all in

never speaking
never sharing

just listening
observing

people don’t notice me
or don’t even care

as I sit there and
listen to them

I know all their secrets
and all their thoughts

I know who she likes
and who he does not

speaking is sharing
and letting people know

but listening is learning
and I have learnt
all that there is to know
