LISTENING~by Joseph Gnatek

What does it take
to listen a bit
to someone’s misfortunes . . .
to somebody’s trip.

Hearing them talk,
relating to their deal,
lightens their load,
helps them in feel.

Keeps them together
in good stead of hope,
helping to weather
their frenzy to cope.

I find that my job
is to listen well
understanding the pain
of their living hell.

I can’t fix it for them
or make it go away,
but I can be there
to express their say.

God does the mending
of human travail,
I do the lending
of ear to their ail.
