Look Closely and Listen

Look closely

Right in front 

There’s so much

To see

Take the time

Open your eyes

Use your hands

And your heart

Dig beneath

The surface

There’s so much more

That meets the eye

If only

You’ll pay attention

Listen closely

Lean forward

There’s words

You’ve heard before

And somehow forgotten 

To listen to all those

 left unspoken 

And hanging in the air

You should understand

There’s so much

There’s more than

Just one language

One way

Of doing things

You’re missing 

The mark

The sound

The sight

The moment

All because

It’s not what

You were expecting 

To see

To hear

To feel

To know

Right now
