UNDERSTANDING MISUNDERSTANDING

You heard what I did not say,

But, you didn’t hear what I said.

 

You read what I did not write,

But, you didn’t read the message reflected in my eyes.

 

You thought your heart was close to mine,

But, you didn’t feel its beats as did I.

 

So easy it is for you to say what you say,

To do what you do and think what you think.

 

Without a care for my feelings,

Without considering all fervent appealing.

 

Put yourself, in my place, will you?

The truth will you see then, just as I do.

 

To hoist one’s voice obdurately,

Makes another’s eyes moist.

 

A failure to understand,

Leaves relationships bland.

 

Misunderstandings rob your peace and mine,

How can we then for God’s glory shine?
