Believing What They Hear

Regardless as to who says what,
About their talents, skills and abilities.
And what they can do,
That should be done.
With opportunities taken,
To get and receive an attention.
It will always be the ones who are criticized,
As judgements pass upon them come...
For proving to produce and with evidence,
Not only what they've done to do...
But still will be undermined for their efforts.
No matter what it is clear and in sight,
Of others with their druthers to claim...
A doing they have yet to show or expose,
Can by them be done much better.
As those who listen to agree,
Leave believing what they hear...
Is all that it takes to witness a progress made.
