Understanding

by jusylee72

Understanding

I often wonder what I know about life and what is beyond me.

Just when I think I understand the world, the world surprises me.

I do know this

I have never set out to hurt someone.

but I have hurt people

even people I love

I seek to understand

Yet have misunderstood words meant to need understanding

Understanding, according to definition, is the intelligence to look beyond what we think and see others beliefs.

Perception, Our angle, Our view.

encloses our own minds, colored by our lives,

Realization

is understanding others may never live up to our expectations.

and

we

never
live
up
to
theirs

Yet,

We learn to love them.
