A Heart That Listens

To be wise is better than to be right,
To be compassionate better than being bright,
To be tolerant better than being brilliant,
To be charitable better than being resilient,
For after we are gone this is our legacy,
Whether you are the pauper or the marquis,
The ones remembered are the spiritual,
We don’t need warriors but more rationale,
Instead of great minds that speak a storm,
A big heart that listens – and a home,
