To Be Understood

Updated: Jan 14

Oh what a blessing it is to be understood

To have someone ‘get you’ without having to utter a word

To find comfort in the silence

To connect.

It’s a lonely world when you’re not understood

Trying to express a thought

An emotion

An intention

An energy

Only to find it fall by the wayside time and time again, as if speaking in a foreign language.

And yet we still try so hard to be understood

We reach, we seek and continue to pursue

Expressing ourselves in the best ways we know how.

But perhaps it’s not through the lack of effort that you’re not understood

Perhaps it’s just that everybody is talking -
