Listening

Listening.
And being there for someone loved...
To do just that!
With a mind willing,
To be receptive and clear...
Of opinions sitting,
On the tip of one's tongue.
With a giving of attention,
And staying mum.
Listening to someone.

Listening is not easily done.
For those who have experienced...
A life in which peace of mind has come.
When a listening ear,
Had not been volunteered by no one.
And some who know this...
Do their best to sit with patience.
Listening with no other reason...
But to be there as is wished.
For someone who has selected you,
Just for this.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Listening and Making Attempts

From Listening and making attempts,
That is how one is known to grow.
I can not expound on something sound,
I have not in my mind yet to know.
And maturing through my life I've found,
A teaching of this that has taught me so.

I can only speak with authority,
From those steps I've taken...
Whether or not,
A direction headed was meant to be.
And where I have not ventured or seen,
Would be difficult for me to fake as reality.

A competence I have chosen for me.
But from my own acquired abilities.
And if I should offend anyone by this?
That is on them to seek a defense.
And not to be an adapted extension,
Of my own existence I still live to experience.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Listening Effectively

I got it...
The first time.
I got it...
The second time.
But it was after the third time,
Of understanding clearly...
What was said the first time,
I stopped listening...
To allow you to ramble on.

Hoping in the midst of you doing it...
Something in your mind would comprehend,
I am also participating in the conversation.
And doing the best I can,
To do that effectively.

'Oh...
So,
Why didn't you interrupt me...
To say that you understood? '

I tried.
But listening effectively,
Is not one of your attributes.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Listening Initiates Their Cold Shoulders

It makes little sense,
To keep a monitoring done...
Of their self destructiveness.

It is best for those to shut mouths close.
Since listening initiates...
Their cold shoulders they expose.

And a beginning that ignites...
A feeding of their self righteousness.
Kept unthawed as an aging isolation grows.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
