Stop and Just Listen

I had heard the sound of a piano,
I had to stop and listen.
I had my attention to the softness, the notes and lyrics,
to read, analyze, and perfectly sing them.


I had stood up and taken a deep breath every note pressed by my teacher.
Now drained and restless,
Till every breath I take,
I walked out of the room.


I pulled out my headphones, and listened,
And listened to the beautiful song that filled my ears with joy.
Not thinking or wandering,
Just listening.
