The Silent Observer

standing alone in a crowd

watching waiting looking listening learning

the crowd is unsure

silence and observation intimidates

the watched need to reserve judgement

take solace in the fact that as the observed

they are learning



observing to write

learning to observe

learning from observing

thankful to the observed for the lessons learnt



our internal observer pushes us forward

driving us towards new horizons

calling us to new challenges

but judging harshly when we fall short

never be scared to stand alone

in the crowded silence of your mind
