How To Listen

Stop, don’t press the button, halt, what is it, wait and be patient, did i wait till the end before forming opinions, did i jump the gun, was i ready with an answer before she finished talking, did i reply with the same old argument, was i listening at all. How was it possible to listen when my mind was already made up, why did i allow the views of others to poison my thinking. Somethings did not need to be said, a flower, a tree, a river, amen.
