Take a Break

Don’t just talk
Take a break
Stop and listen
Hear what people
Have to say
Listen to their stories
Who they really are
Connecting with them
On a real level
Look at them and see
A bit of you
Reflected back
Into your own eyes
See who they are
Let them know
Who you are
And then stop
Take the time
To listen to them
Connect with them
Connect with you
Isn’t that what
Jesus showed us
When He walked
On the earth
Born a baby
Died a martyr
Raised from the dead
For each of us
Regardless of who we are
Where we are
What we’re doing
We are all
Worthy of connecting
Of sitting down
And taking time
To listen to
Each other.
