I was listening even when I wasn’t listening.
I sat in the back of the classroom; never paid attention;
nor did I listen.
I endured a multitude of bumps and bruises;
I didn’t listen.
My mother gave me a lot of Jewels;
but I didn’t listen.
I went to jail I missed a lot of thanksgivings;
I didn’t listen.
I was broken;
But my mother didn’t listen.
She chose a Man over me;
She didn’t listen.
I got tired of hurting;
God started talking;
and I started listening.
He exposed all of my enemies;
He told me they wouldn’t listen.
Just like Jesus in His hometown;
They didn’t listen.
Like his heart;
Mine never changed either;
I kept listening.
God gave me a pen;
I started writing;
But nobody listened.
I kept writing I never stopped;
Because people started listening.
I kept pouring out my heart;
And the smart ones kept listening.
Today; I have more than 500k listening. I’m grateful that I started listening.
I’m waiting on All people to listen.
The Lack of listening will hurt you in the end;
That’s why I desperately pour my heart out with my pen.
Let God in;
You’re guaranteed a win.
Separate yourselves from those who don’t like to listen;
We can’t force anyone to listen. Sometimes we have to love from afar;
Elevation will come when you’re apart.
It starts with listening;
God will break you down;
Nurture; and bring you back to health;
If you decide to listen.
If He tell you to say goodbye;
I advise you to listen.
That toxic history means nothing;
You better listen.
But I know;
To my smart ones who read and listen;
Keep hope alive;
Listening will save your life.
Listening will bless you with your husband or wife.
Listening will rid your Heart of racism and evil.
Listening will have you loving all people. Listening will get you to The Promise Land.
Listening will transition you to be a Great Woman and Man.
Listening will bless your life with Humility.
Listening will have your mind open to many possibilities.
Why did I just write this;
I’m just showing God how hard I try;
