Listen

Listen

Throughout life, heroic tales abound

Just observe, in real-time, and they are found

There are heroic stories for all who travel life’s trail

Listen to those willing, they will tell you their tale

The time for conversation is later, try not to butt-in

Use your ears, and let something in.

Let them finish their story, hear something grow

What’s trying to get out, you already know

I don’t mean be quiet and not say a word

Share your valuable experiences, they all should be

heard

They are multitudes, life’s heroes, help them to share

Talk to them, ask questions, show you care

From the honesty of children, through to knowledge of

old

Just show some interest; then richness and wisdom will

always unfold
