Because when you hear, you hear sound, and all sounds are the same. But when you listen, that’s when you begin to decipher the different notes, and that’s what opens up a world of sound.
Don’t ‘learn’ to fly,
just hop and hop and jump and leap and
bound until you fly.
When you’ve been walking all your life
heals scraping tarmac growing blisters
on your toes and growing dullness in your mind and
a heart slowly turning from flesh to stone until you
Don’t walk today, don’t struggle, don’t scrape your feet slowly
nearing that distant pindrop goal. Don’t give in to the tedious and struggle that is the journey. Don’t let it be the journey.
No, -know that you are already there.
That journey: it is here! you are where you need to be and where you
need to be is -you-
so be, and breath, and Fly.
