Try to understand

You think you know,

Because I am human, you are human

We share the human experience

But the thing is we are different

From being me I can tap into the whole experience of being a human

I see the homeless, the glass eye. A soul filled with the unthinkable. A temple damaged beyond measure and I understand. A baby, confusion, but still human and I understand.

I am privileged, I am loved,

But from the historicity, it hits me like a wave.

I see the slave, the refugee and I understand.

I get it, I am frustrated

I can never sail through

I understand and I accept it,

Although I am frustrated

You are human but you will never understand,

Just try to but understand.
