'Listen' by Jina Wallwork
When they talk of the worst of you, listen to me. When they point out all of your flaws and expect them to be acknowledged, listen to me. As they criticize all that you are, turn your back on their words. When surrounded by darkness, let my words cut through the sorrow. Listen to me because I love you. It is through love that I see your greatness and your humanity. See yourself through loving eyes.
