Open to interpretation

Words you see are open to interpretation,

in both speaking and listening,

it is therefore impossible to "understand",

for to understand is to assume that you know,

what another means by what they say,

true understanding is empathy,

to literally feel the others meaning,

which is to know,

as though it were yourself talking,

which, as we are all one,

is the truth of the matter.

    What more could I ask for today? It is a beautiful day the sun shining and birds singing. I am reading your poetry in which you share a little of yourself maybe without even realizing it you have written from your soul. Thank you for sharing your excellent poetry with us Darren. Love, Carol
