DO YOU NOTICE how easily we DISMISS each other?
It means …. we simply IGNORE,
We fail to acknowledge others wants and needs,
Is it really that big a chore?
It doesn’t seem difficult to help each other,
And LISTEN to requests we each make,
Isn’t that what relationships are composed of,
A two way street …. of give and of take?
So, the next time that someone asks us for something,
Let’s not just avoid and dismiss,
For that is a cruel and unkind behavior,
We need to answer …. not ignore and resist.
To IGNORE is to DISCOUNT, which no one deserves,
We can acknowledge and give a reply,
So others will know they’re important to us,
To meet their needs, we are willing to try.
We may have to decline what they have asked for,
We can address it in a healthy way,
We’re not to ignore …. or give a mean reply,
“Yes” or “No” … we may graciously say.
