"L" may stand for "learning"

i am yearning for some sense
.
"I" stands for "ideas"
and what that is ? that is immense
.
"S" may stand for "student"
that is prudent, seems to me
.
"T' stands for "together"
wonder whether you agree
.
"E" means "education"
this vocation makes us whole
.
"N" stand for nutrition
this condition feeds the soul
.
those letters spell out "LISTEN"
if they're spilled and moved about
they also spell out "SILENT"
if they take another route
.
yes, your mind must remain silent
if you're truly to discern
do not be thinking what you'll say
when it becomes your turn
.
when it is time to speak your mind
and you have made your choice
you hope the one you're talking to
shuts down their inner voice
.
be silent and just listen
and exchange of thoughts will grow
rivers run more smoothly
when you don't dam up their flow
