An Understanding Understood

If we could just replace to rid
All facelifts.
And return to basics.
With them prioritized.
To realize and stop,
The running away from fear.
And doubts...
Kept kicked and knocked about.
All of us would discover,
The expense it is...
Paying the cost to avoid,
Annoying consequences...
We permit with our ignorance.
Only if we permitted ourselves,
To close our mouths to listen.
Before we open them to respond,
To something...
We neither gave attention,
Undivided to comprehend.
Nor heard what was said,
To connect with it...
An understanding understood.
