"Raising your voice only increases the volume, not the validity of your arguments." © Shoshan
It's unfortunate that, often, our conversations turn into a shouting match rather than a constructive exchange of ideas. Talking should be a tool for understanding, not a battlefield of decibels. The fact that we raise the volume of our voice doesn't solve our problems, it simply amplifies them and adds noise to the situation. Moreover, shouting louder does not add validity to our arguments or improves our reasoning. We should view dialogue as the delicate mechanism of a clock; shouting in an argument is like trying to fix that clock with a hammer. For communication to be effective and productive, we need to practice active listening, mutual respect, and empathy.
Together let's vow, my love, to cease the shout,
no more voices in the wind, without a route.
Our language, let it be a rite,
where respect and calm are our guiding light.
Raising the voice only stirs the sea,
and in its fury, there's no place to be.
Let's speak in whispers, let's try to hear,
in serenity, we can solve our differences clear.
Let's promise, love, no more decibel fights,
but dialogues sweet as dawn's early lights.
Let's find peace in each conversation,
and make understanding our dedication.
