Communication pitfalls

I say one thing

You hear something else

Words, so easily

misconstrued.

Filters, act like barriers

to communication,

Building stone-clad walls

of separation.

~~~~

And trust breaks down

as suspicion, like a flood-tide

pours into disconnected hearts

~~~~

You say one thing

I hear something else

Cycle is repeated…

Wrong end of stick grasped,

sowing potentially

seeds of defeat

spiralling downward

into oblivion

~~~~

Until we agree enough’s enough

And then…

We choose to listen – internally

We choose to understand – relationally

We choose to love – unconditionally
