Talking I try to hear what someone says,
understand how they think,
learn their thoughts,
walk in someone else's shoes.

I want to put myself behind me.

I can't.

I fail.

I am disappointed.

Two ears and one mouth,
for a reason. Listen twice as hard as talk.

Learning is my passion, but people are hard to study.
Conversational words aren't set in stone, they slip and change their shape.
You cannot pin them down.
Quickly spoken, easily forgotten.
Said in haste, remembered forever.
Understanding more is loving more.
I need a hug.
