Listening and watching quietly at your elbow,
to conversations give and take.
Invisible, forgotten, unnoticed unless a sound
absorb, digest, analyze.
Told ” go play”, unless, attention is avoided.
barely breathing, invisible,
until someone looked around, “little ones have big ears.”
Between child and adult.
Stalking social media to see where sentiments lie,
who believes what and why.
Considering, weighing, thinking.
Finding a voice, and surprise! some people agreed,
others listen and watch,
until it seems I end up where I began.
