Speak and I’ll listen

has always been

the chosen motto of my life

To be there

with listening ear

and open heart

It’s who I am meant to be

But no one ever told me

the other side of this coin

of life purpose

Speak and I’ll listen

can easily become

wearing the weight of the world

at times

Hearing the deepest pains

and not being able to save anyone

Every heros nightmare

Especially when it comes to those you love

My heart is to help

to save

to rescue

But there are times

when even this hero

must stand on the sideline

shouldering the weight of what’s been told

while allowing the speaker

to live their life

as they choose

Regardless of what choices are made

Remember this..

Speak and I’ll listen
