What

Have ears to hear
eyes to see
and the heart to listen

‘Daddy”
“What?”
Young eyes are guileless
Sincere questions
get
sincere answers

“Dad”
“What!”
Her eyes were wide open
Surprise, surprise
means
shock and awe

“Pops”
“Whaaat!?”
His eyes were glaring
raging outrage
needs
measured response

“Papa”
“Whattt?!”
Older eyes stare intently
Inciting incites
make
authentic truth

“Old man”
“what”
The mirror reflects tired eyes
Looking back
shows
what’s looking back

The heart that listens
has ears that see
and eyes that hear.
