Please - Poem by stan pelfrey

Clear yourself
from bias for awhile please,
and listen to these words
as they are set to melodies.

Hear these sounds
with an open mind,
not criticizing,
if you do not understand.

Become a listener,
instead of a talker,
for the listener
attempts to comprehend,
while the talker
merely passes quick judgement.

I ask this for myself,
for these are my words,
and I do not want them stifled
before their ideas are heard.
