Pretending

IMG_2310_0126_top_01

I only pretend to know.
I tell myself and others
how advanced I am
become in understanding.

Moments arrive from my heart,
saying I should turn
and just listen to it
for the real mastery.

A constant voice
demands my attention,
while the genuine
ponders and waits for me.
