When the verb doesn't have an object, you can omit the preposition to.

People never listen.

In your example, you have to use listen to.

  • May you please show an example of a verb with object and without? – Judicious Allure Dec 20 '15 at 0:41

    @Assiduous With object: "Listen to my voice". Without: "People never listen". Also with: "People never listen to my voice". – Jason C Dec 20 '15 at 0:42
  • Thanks to you, I think that I got it. Thank you for the help – Judicious Allure Dec 20 '15 at 0:47
