We learn more by listening then by talking 

We are quick to speak 

So often finishing 

Sentences of others 

Missing details of,

Well, everything.

By rushing, everything

Is slower.

Reality often is 

Counterintuitive, I guess. 

Slowing, focusing, listening, 

Focusing on that listening 

Listening to UNDERSTAND

Not only more productive;

Relationships built.

Parenting Frustrations  

Clothes,
Simply…
Just clothes
Arguments burst forth
And I cant….

Children fighting
Like this thing
Defends innocent
Lives

No willingness to
Give, to attempt
Anything outside
The preconceived

“I won’t find
ANYTHING” in this
Place I’ve not yet
Seen.

Frustrated at my
Failure…
No understanding or
Trusting in my
Experience

All I’ve done
All I am;
Worthless

I am tired
