NaBloPoMo 2021 Do Good, Kid!

These days when people talk to each other

To be paying only partial attention they appear

Most of us have our eyes glued to screens

Distracted we are, more than we’ve ever been

Most of us are guilty of this, yet most of us crave

To be heard-wish undivided attention our listeners would save

When we have something we want to share

That one should listened to, seems fair


In a world where many talk and few really listen

Be the one who truly listens to fellow men

When someone tells you something, if you can look them in the eye

Suppress the urge to interrupt, if you can at least try

To not check your phone or look elsewhere

You may find that you actually care

About what the person before you is saying

You may understand them if attention you are paying

By really listening to people, empathy you may gain

Reduce misunderstandings, feel others’ pain


In a world full of myriad voices, full of cacophony

Have your unique voice, but also listen intently…
