We have two ears, they work as one.
We have one mouth, it works as two,
But if we bight our tongue and keep quite and open up our ears; we would be able to hear what people mean instead of what they say.

The author's comments:
When I wrote this piece I had just realized that sometimes when we say something to our friends, family and peers it can be taken a different way the what we had meant it to be taken. I wrote this in hopes that people will realize that as long as we keep an open mind to what is being said no matter what happened or even how angry we are at them. For words are a powerful weapon that can be used to hurt, but also heal the wounds that we inflect on people that we never meant to cause.
