Sponge

 

Tablo reader up chevron

I am a sponge

 I am a sponge

Soaking up all of the words surrounding me

And through all the chatter from my classmates

I don't say anything

I just sit there listening

Writing the words I hear

Pouring them into secret stories

never to be heard or seen

A sponge soaking up all the words I hear

Then squeezing them all onto the blank page

I am a sponge
