You overheard she is a mess,
But did you listen to the fact
that she lost her job and her husband.
You overheard he gets in trouble at school
But did you listen and understand,
that he is abused at home
and is looking for attention.
You overheard she starves herself,
But did you listen and know
she is bullied for being overweight.
You overheard she has money,
But did you listen to how she built her empire,
With hard work and dedication.
You overheard he drove to another city and got lost.
But did you listen to how he suffers from mild dementia?
You overheard she is skinny and looks like she is on drugs.
But did you listen and feel how
she has stage 4 cancer and is dying rapidly.
Be mindful of what you overhear
If you’re not going to listen.
