The Process Of Comprehension
It makes absolutely no sense.
Attempting to communicate with anyone,
Who has not learned to value listening.
Or how the process of comprehension begins.
And anyone discovering to understand,
They have been in that position to get...
Ignored and disrespected.
Is either extremely patient.
Or enjoys hearing their own voice.
To rehearse and practice the doing of this.
Knowing there is no other choice.
Since the one who should be listening,
With undivided attention to give.
Does not hear the words being said.
Nor how they are used.
For meaning and purpose to define why,
Such words were picked.
To associate them with having conversation.
