“Listening” a poem

Listening is an enviable skill;
try it sometimes;
lead with questions insightful;
we all like to talk, let them;
Reaching for words, the mind stumbles on answers;
if you want to help... listen

Our hearts speak through our limbs and eyes;
but uses our voice the best;
troubled mind shares its pain;
spirit wrestles its demons
fluttering through the air;
if you want to understand... listen

Our lives tell a story,
reveals our singular mystery;
the drama of our time spent
displays the value of our currency;
a more mythic story never told;
if you want to learn... listen

Explanations wilt in the abstract,
often far from their mark,
showing the limit of words as symbols;
knowledge is accessible by us all;
if you want to share... listen
