People Will Listen

People made you feel like they were more important than you They talked over you, cut you off as though no one wanted to listen to you

When you tried to speak they ignored you, dismissed you because they couldn’t see what was special about you

Maybe you didn’t see it either But there is something unique about you It may take time to find You may be afraid to show the real you

Please, don’t be afraid I know I’ll like what’s special about you When you find it and show it off People will listen to you
