Just listen….


I feel like an idiot thinking that it was all about me
I was so certain of betrayal that I just couldn’t see
Sometimes we don’t notice what’s really going on
When people seem upset we need to find out what’s wrong
So the next time you try jumping to conclusions
Don’t let yourself be angered or disillusioned
Instead take a step back and really listen
You’ll be astonished by what you’ve been missing

  1. Listening is an amazing skill and sometimes hard to do. We have all these filters that color our views. Great advice, Michelle 🙂

  2. Thanks D! I wrote this poem such a long time ago, I can’t remember why I wrote it in the first place. But I think all of us can relate to situations like these and I was thinking today that I really do need to listen more myself. 🙂
