Hear to be Here
Hear not listen if you wish to remain here.
Your care is vigilance played by ear.
Block out dissonance with reasons that steer
your conscience away from negligence’s sneer.
Your ignorance is destruction’s spear working to blear
your intelligence with trivial matters that taint your cheer.
Be prudent to protect yourself from all that’s leer.
Your vigilance is all you need to stay in the clear
Danger and deception are hurts’ handy gear
so be on your guard to safeguard all you hold dear.
Hear to be here is the voice of reason sparing you a tear.
We often hear people offering wisdom on listening not hearing but today with so much lies and malice, hearing prevails over listening because it allows you to filter what you must not internalize and what you should be alert for as a task of perception to physical danger. Hence the poem.
