Be still and listen to the voices of the world,

Open your heart and let your soul unfurl,

Find the wisdom in the words of others,

Let it in and let it flow like a river.


Take the time to understand their plight,

See the truth in their stories with insight,

Listen without judgement or fear,

So that you can bring peace and good cheer.


Take the time to really hear,

The stories of another’s life that they share,

Look at the world with love and care,

So that you can do what you can to make the world a better place.
