Hear Your Humankind

Many talk and few listen.

To understand one another should be our mission.

Many talk to be heard, not to relate.

Tongues fixed eager for debate.

You know, closed ears leads to a closed mind?

And then a closed heart.

Many hear nothing because they’re anxious to start.

Did you hear the message, the soul of the person?

The heart?

Try to speak with love as a purpose.

Listen to learn.

I promise it’s worth it.

Mama always told me a hard-head makes a soft ass.

I’ve learned to listen because I’m not the only person with class.

Close your mouth and open your mind.

Hear your humankind.
