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 -
