Can we stop and just listen?

Can we stop and just listen to what they say?

‘Cos the wheel will keep turning until every dog has it’s day.

Can we withhold judgement even when we don’t agree?

Even when their ideas make us want to shout and scream?

Because foolish or brilliant, we all have a role,

And the fool might have some wisdom that lights up dark roads.

Can we make time to listen, and be polite?

Look behind the words and see the person. Try to understand the other side.
