If you need to win the conversation,
you’ve lost the art of communication.
Most people talk at,
instead of to people,
instead of into,
through piercing arrows,
instead of soothing aloe,
and they wonder,
why they are not heard.
And it is no different for a writer,
how can anyone receive your words,
if all you want to do is be read,
if you don’t want to run your fingers through the mind of a reader.
