can we listen?

can we listen
to our own hearts
in the midst of conflict

and hear their longing
for something greater
than the over-beaten tracks
of righteousness


can we listen
to each others hearts
through the door of defense

and honour
their delicate need
to be received
with care


can we listen
to ourselves
and each other
from a place of wonder

no matter
how painful
it all becomes


because in the end
when we’re all alone
in our bed
with death near

there’s only one heart
whispering every truth.
