Communication is a basic need.
Unless we use it, we cannot heed
The open, spoken word
And the nuances which cannot be heard,
But rather sensed.
Relationships of all kinds require it.
Without it, we are walking blind.
Communication is part of what we should all carry in Our kit.
This is how we unbind
All those spoken and unspoken feelings and words.
If we want to work in isolation
that is fine, we donít need it.
But then we have to make assumption
That what is said is edict
With no ability to question or reframe.
Narrative has such a strong flow
We will make our own stories from what we hear
Based on what we know
But we only know from our ear
This can only process with no other input in our Brain.
We become spiritually and emotionally dead
If we can't explore
What is being said
We lose ability to implore
And join conversation to add our ideas or reasoning.
We all have our ideals.
We all have our thoughts.
We know what we feel,
But we must be taught
To be open to scrutiny and challenge.
Unless we can do this
We all think we alone are right.
If we cant take a challenge
We are up for a fight.
Then we have lost our integrity
To enable us to see, explore or accept
The views of others.
