“Learning to listen relationally, listen with cool heads and clear boundaries, listen with the quietness of the heart and the gentleness of the body, means having a self so developed it can afford to yield.”
~Terrence Real, How Can I Get Through To You~

To my heart you once came
and knocked on love’s door
I pretended not to see you
trying to be a better man

You spoke for our peace
but I was already broken
I had already prayed aloud
my now repented of prayers

I was opened by the thanks
for bringing home supper
It was you I meant to thank
when I first came home
