And You Grow


Pick a pen;

Scribble every now and then,

To be understood

As much as you can.

But take time to listen

And hear the other end;

To learn and blend–

And perhaps win a friend.

Open your mouth in needed occasions;

Fearlessly, speak your thoughts and insights and visions

With no inhibition–

To let your voice be heard is a noble mission.

But find a way to solitude:

A moment with books is always good.

A moment of silence can tune

Your mind and soul.

And you grow.
