Watching and listening

To the things around me.

I don't open my mouth

Afraid I might disrupt their flow.

I see how they live

Listen to the words they use

And learn from their mistakes.

I don't want to become them

No, not with the way they talk

Even the way they move and look.

I know what might upset them

I know what will make them laugh

But I sit from a distance

And watch their reactions to different situations

That pass their way

And smile to myself

Because I'm my own person

And not like them.
