Some people talk but don’t listen, the only thing they here is what they say. Its no real compromise to anyone else. I wonder from within if people even care about others.
My mind drifts into a place where you can wonder and if folks listen. The only sound I am making is a education to each person. So we can learn what the truth is. Smiles fill the room as the none attentive have so much to say but never listen.
Don’t try to compare me to you and what you select to here I hear you loud and clear. My mind picks up the stories you tell about control and freedom. Yes I know the levels of ignorance you build around two.
But the question is do you listen? My mind is here to over stand any ones view point but if we don’t agree I shall flee and not get caught up in selfish behavior. If smart people can listen they will know that the only options that exist are the ones they make “standards” yes I listen and I heard and I’m me. Folks think they are nothing with out the rules and orders of the roman greek society they are in. Well sorry shorty I’m here to tell you times are changing. Listen to love and hear what’s said and not what you have selected.
