Standing Under Understanding


We can try as hard as we might to comprehend life
Dreams always seem to be goals worth our pursuing
However feelings always seem to get in the path
As we struggle to get to the point of understanding.

Is it emotion that begins to cloud our decision-making
Are we too often blinded by our desires to really see
Maybe we are cursed with too strong a personal connection
Not letting us be the person that we feel we should be.

It is not as if we should turn a blind eye to reality
Life never allows us to see things around without blinking
We are ingrained with a desire to love and give as much
So how to we transition from not just feeling to thinking.

Too often one or the other loses sight of what is real
Bombarded with hope, want, desire, lust, love, maybe crying
Our brain, heart, mind and trust all work together as one
Letting feeling and thinking eventually bring understanding.
