It has no eyes,
yet always sees.
It has no ears,
yet always hears.
It has no heart,
yet is alive.

It knows what has happened,
what is happening,
and what is to come.
Some days it is your enemy,
but other days it is your friend.
It brings you great pain,
but also great joy.

It has brought you here,
reading what I have written.
It has brought me here,
to write what I have written.

Now try to think,
think of what I have said,
of what I could be describing.
You know it,
just let the word flow,
It is whispering in your ear.
Then you start to listen
and, like a surge of energy,
you realize I am talking
