Can You

Can you stop long enough to listen

To hear

To feel

To let the words of a story resonate within

Not to just listen but to hear

With open wounds and open hearts

Without distraction

Can you without a doubt really understand

Or just pass a smile to reassure

Is it genuine or a facade

Can you actually care

Feel

Love

With your whole self

Without judging

Until you look at every angle

Can you really?
