Passively, of course

I learn to watch
to listen
to exist
passively, of course

I hear
I speak
I laugh
I cry
passively, of course

I watch the news
Learning what I don’t want to know
I say, “Let’s do something.
let’s help someone”
(passively, of course)

I curl up
thinking of you
needing help
all I can do
for you my friend
is cry
passively, of course

    Very nice, but slightly repetitive.
