Listen Well – PianoTweet no. 705

Nowadays we’re used
to talk, to chat, to argue, to explore an opinion.
And all that on very high speed
in a very loud modus.
Hardly any time is left
to listen, to reflect, to think.

Why should we react immediately
on everything and everyone?
Why not wait a moment or two?
Maybe 10 moments?
What do we fear
if we keep silent and
do not speak for a while?

When we listen,
we’ll understand much more:
of each other, of everything around us.

And probably even
understand ourselves.
Which is, by far, the most important result.
