Can’t listen?

Why is it that you don’t want to listen to me

Listen to how I want you to tell my personal information

I am sure you have reasons for not listening to me

Like you want to be honest or it’s better

Or even that it’s more appropriate

But can’t you listen to me 

When I say reword how you want to say it

To make me more comfortable 

That I want you to put in general terms

It’s still being honest if you generalize it

I guess you won’t because it isn’t what you want

So I understand that you can’t listen 

Can you?
