We ready our ears
We listen carefully
We focus on what they say
We want to understand

They speak out smoothly
They have much rehearsed
They wisely use their eyes
They are sure of themselves
They know that they know.

Their words are complicated
Their words are profound
Their words know their way
Their words strike our hearts.

And at the end of the day,
Overwhelmed by their words,
Rarely we realize
That conveyed by their words
Are only their words.
