Understanding

Be it desired.
Is it required?

Can it be comprehended?
Felt beneath the skin
Less experienced?

Does it demand participation?
Accumulation?
Confrontation of facts?

Left raw
Or baked through life
Can it be digested and invested?

Intellectual
Or emotional
A pinch of both extremes
Too lend potency
To empathy

Two parted yet a whole

Understand
how understanding
Demands humility
While standing high and bold.

Be Kind

ungrand
a simpleness

a thing we teach to kids
yet in adulthood,
remissed

plain concepts
hard to execute,
when wrapped in selfish flesh

hero
the one who holds
this bold,
under pressures

refusing to let the world
rob
gestures

small
filled with explosive love

a tinny act
capable
of slamming shut hell’s door

Holly Father,
teach us all,
to pour out more
