Treasure Island

Listen


Listening.
It's the hardest thing for the human to do.
Saying you're a good listener means nothing.
At least, these days.

Though it's an art form in itself.
It's not what we hear.
It's what we listen to.
Common sense should tell you what to do with that information.
Human evolution has taken away common sense.
So what now?

You're here to listen to me.
That's lovely.
But then what?
What will you do then?
Pity me?
Hold me?
Lie that everything will be alright?

Listening.
It's the hardest thing for the human to do.
Why?
Because you only hear, never truly listen.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
