Beyond and Underneath



Beyond and Underneath


Look beyond the tough exterior

Through the eyes

To hear the soft murmurs of

Each and every soul.

Hear the truth behind

The actions

The truth behind the angry words.

See each person as that and so much more.

We all long to be heard

We all need to know we’re good enough

We all seek praise and absolution.

Some need outside validation

Until they build it from within.

Be tender with your words

Spread kindness from your heart.

Leave no one out.

Listen to what lies underneath the surface and

The world will change before

Your very eyes.

We share vulnerability and pain

We share goodness and love,

Focus an open heart

On all that’s shared.


What have you discovered by listening beyond what people say?
