Words and sounds
But no understanding
Mouths are moving
Hands are gesturing
Language is spoken
Anger still exists
Hate is festering
Language without listening

“Language without listening
So very true…like the sentiments expressed…a very passionate write.
Thank you, David. I really feel language is useless without real listening.

Thank you, Angela 🙂
The last two lines said it all, and it reminds me of my mum’s nagging, haha! Great words 😛
Always great to hear from you. RiikaInfinityy!

Far too often the bitter truth. Life sometimes seems like its all about monologue instead of dialogue. great write!
