i dont know how to listen

i know you’re telling me something
but i dont know how to listen
this just keeps happening
and i dont know how to listen
when they carry on like i haven’t told them
on several other ocassions
what i want in life
my dreams
why they dont care for my ambition
i want to be more peaceful
and i dont want to disobey
be disrespectful in any way
but God please can you hear this
can you please make it go away
i dont understand how
i can keep these emotions at bay
i wish that i were rumi
or at least someone who knew him
i wish i understood how to listen
i wish i didnt feel this way
