Rookie - 4 Points (A Long while ago / England)

Listen - Poem by Adrian Wait

If we must speak
Let us search for echoes
In the stories that we share
The heart-spent tale
Of life’s journey
The tale recounted
For encouragement
In stillness, reconciles

Words that enable
Too, too many
Hurt and reveal
The uncaring heart
The unlistening ear
Speak only to listen
Listen and you will
Be heard
