Ask Think Hear Feel - Poem by Shannon Thompson

ask many questions
so the one answer
you don't know
won't matter so much

think many thoughts
so the one thought
you don't think
won't be missed

hear many words
so the ones that
you don't hear
won't hurt the most

feel few feelings
so the ones that
you do feel
have life
