Nobody ever listens. Nobody.
My mum doesn’t listen when I’m talking to her.
My siblings don’t either when I’m telling them something.
And my friends pretty much do the same. And so, I stop talking. Sometimes, I repeat what I had said earlier. Other times, I shut them out or act like I had said nothing.
It’s like nobody’s got time to listen. Everyone’s got enough time to yap and rant and never enough time to listen.
I almost feel like a fading echo.. even that’s louder than I am. A fading whisper.. that’s what I have become and I haven’t got long before I go all quite on everyone.
But I listen. I have time, two ears that listen and one hushed tongue.
