To Be Understood

Nothing believed comes,
If one should run from it.
And...
Nothing believed comes,
If one is stunned by it.

Nothing is comprehended,
To understand.
And...
Those who become offended,
Often demand...
To be understood.

Observe and listen with a sitting,
Not too many do.
Too many are quick with their lips,
And...
Prove they are rude.
To then to accuse,
Someone to be abusive.

Nothing is comprehended,
To understand.
And...
Those who become offended,
Often demand...
To be understood.

And wounds are never mended.
With a healing recommended...
'Cause...
People wish to brood as they choose.

Nothing is comprehended,
To understand.
And...
Those who are offended,
Often demand...
To be understood.
But they aren't listening,
As they could and they should.
No they're not listening as they should and they could.
And if they listen they would be understood.

No they don't listen to,
Be understood.
No they don't listen like they could and should.
