Listening

Is terribly underrated.

With all the talk of ‘finding your voice’

And ‘speaking your truth’

Who’s going to be there to hear it all?

Storytelling has been elevated

To near god-like status

And yet what good is a story

If there isn’t an ear to hear it?

In a world with more voices

Than we have time or will to entertain,

The people that take the time

To listen to what we have to say

Are more valuable than ever.

Take note of the ones who listen

And when you speak,

Speak for them.
