Poem: Please Listen

When I ask you to listen to me
and you start giving me advice,
you have not done what I asked.

When I ask you to listen to me
and you begin to tell me why
I shouldn’t feel that way,
you are trampling on my feelings.

When I ask you to listen to me
and you feel you have to do something
to solve my problem,
you have failed me,
strange as that may seem.

Listen! All I ask is that you listen.
Don’t talk or do just hear me.

Advice is cheap; 20 cents will get
you both Dear Abby and Billy Graham
in the same newspaper.
And I can do for myself; I am not helpless.
Maybe discouraged and faltering,
but not helpless.

When you do something for me that I can
and need to do for myself,
you contribute to my fear and
inadequacy.

But when you accept as a simple fact
that I feel what I feel,
no matter how irrational,
then I can stop trying to convince
you and get about this business
of understanding whats behind
this irrational feeling.

And when thats clear, the answers are
obvious and I dont need advice.
Irrational feelings make sense when
we understand whats behind them.

Perhaps thats why prayer works, sometimes,
for some people because God is mute,
and he doesnt give advice or try
to fix things.
God just listens and lets you work
it out for yourself.

So please listen, and just hear me.
And if you want to talk, wait a minute
for your turn and I will listen to you.

Listening requires nothing but impossible for us
A simple heartfelt hello, sorry, thanks hear you .. require nothing free but impossible for us
Unless we become: Phoenix.
Why is this so?
No one can say!
^.^

Great Day                Hug You
