Something to Say

Have you listened lately?

That’s the question I’ve been asking myself this morning.

There are 7 billion people on earth, and they all have something to say.

Some days we don’t have the patience to listen. We watch faces come and go, dwelling on our own problems, aspirations, and experiences. We look to other bodies to fulfill our own purposes, and toss around another’s talent for our own selfish pleasures.

We hear the noise coming from a friend, but are consumed by our own inner dialogue. We refuse to let other voices pour into our lives, because we are consumed by the urge for our own voice to be heard.

Love is not a cold, innate, unfeeling, self-absorbed statue.

Love is a conversation. Sometimes the conversation can be grueling, and other days, it’s the most beautiful, easy thing one will ever experience.

But every moment, it’s worth it.

Because we should fight for

the lost cause,

the outcast,

and the invisible.

Everyone has something to say.

So I’m still asking myself:

Have you listened lately?
