There's a massacre at hand
Making victim of expanse of comprehension
We're murdering pursuit of deeper inquisition
By together taking part in solitary conversations
Do you listen for the wisdom?
Or a foot hold to disarm
And inflate the ego?
Speak and seek profound
Interpret the words unspoken
The benefits they bear
Outweigh semantic quarrelling
And everything being heard well
Could take us further than we are
If only we desire deeper understanding
So is the message sinking in now?
Can we desist circling and skirting issues?
All stubborn pride aside, may betterment grow viable
For the whole of human life
From our agreeing to be liable
So let us listen
Are you listening now?
Do you see that our lies disguise shortcomings?
Like inability to relinquish the self?
Just let go, and become wise
Realizing there's always but a single side
To our debates
