A search of understanding minds will be my ultimate of deeds;
only then may they believe when I say these words are seeds.
I plant the thought within their mind and water with suggestion,
quietly I stand by and listen, as they fill with comprehension.
If the objective is to comprehend, the language that they speak;
Interpretation of the situation, is to keep calm and do not freak.
What fears or wants do I perceive, which buttons have I pressed?
A search for understanding may have filled them with emptiness.
I know not when to stop and think, once my mouth is in position,
some people think that I interrogate, like the Spanish inquisition.
Fear not comrades the coast is clear, and I am now your friend,
my intention was to present my point, only right at the very end.
When first we seek to comprehend, and to hear or lend a hand;
past that moment, is when I will speak; then they will understand.
