“You don’t understand”
That’s what they always tell me
But maybe they’re right
I don’t understand
I don’t understand
Why they won’t let me
Understand
Why would they just
Push me away
Instead of sitting down with me
And explaining it to me
I don’t understand
Why people judge
On the outside
What is on someone’s
Skin
Eyes
Mouth
Instead of what
Is beneath that skin
Story those eyes tell
Words that mouth says
I don’t understand
Why there has to be
Loss
War
Sadness
Instead of
Life
Compromise
Happiness
I just don’t understand
And maybe they’re right
Maybe I never will
But I don’t have to stop
Searching
For the answer
For an explanation
