Learn to look

Stop talking and learn the art of looking.

Ever wondered why the clock is round,

Even though time cannot be bound?

Ever noticed how our shadow behaves,

Sometimes as our master and sometimes as our slave.

Ever wondered why despite being bright,

It is the Moon and not the Sun we prefer to sight?

And did you ever wonder why we seek the lost,

Despite having just what we actually need the most?

I am certain most did not,

Because most never actually look.

And thereby miss out on so much we have got,

We have way more than what we actually took.

Learn to look because life is funny,

As it hides the very obvious.

While everyone aims to be exquisite, be ordinary,

By not looking we create our own fuss.
