Favorite Quote:
A word to the wise is unnecessary. It's the stupid ones that need the advice. -Bill Cosby

We all have our ways to talk to each other
When we talk, write, type out our words
There are simple ways to make me blush
The secrets I don’t wish to share

Somehow, I speak out everything
I don’t understand why no one else does
I am a shell, to all who try to learn from me

I love, I feel, I take it all in
I understand all who walk around me
The ones who stop, beat the answer out
Rather than asking me to speak

No one understands that I will listen and speak
It is hard to tell who does not listen
Listen, I’ll tell you my secret; I have none to hide

I used Walt Whitman's style of writing to create this poem; enjoy!
