I am the one

I am the one standing on the side-lines

The one who barely says a word about anything

I am the one asking questions

But not yet giving an opinion of my own

I listen, I take it all in, looking at it from different angles

I am slowly making meaning of it all, my opinion

Do not shoot my down

Do not disregard my words just because it is mine

I may know more than you can ever comprehend, understand more

Do not see my silence as incompetence

Nor see it as naivety because of my age

I listen to all, try to understand

You may not notice me but I am there

And I have a voice…


About Channah_Reynecke

College graduate with a degree in Psychology and English. I am an au pair at the moment but going to carry on with my studies this year. I love animals especially horses. During my studies I had to write a thesis and that is when I realised that I love writing even more than just poetry in general and on top of that I am a total book nerd, so I got that going for me!
