“He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.”
Sit back and listen; watch and observe
You don’t always have to make your voice heard
If you hush up and let someone else take a turn
You might be surprised at the things you can learn
Your own contributions? They do have their place
But it isn’t always the right time nor the place
Slow down that expressive machine in your head
Then reflect a bit on what someone else said
And here’s the harsh truth (sure you’re ready for it?):
When you speak your own mind, sometimes other ignore it!
There’s a reason you’ve got one mouth and two ears
Not always what you say; sometimes it’s what you hear
Don’t misunderstand; I still value your view
Just make sure you listen to others’ views too!
