Don't try, not yet

Written by: Amber Chafer

How do you understand,
What makes you know?

Know that you can understand ones 
pain.

The suffering they have,
For anything other then
Pity alone.

What gives you right
To judge those who
Have all then less for themselves.

To fall to the knees
With joy while
Those whom you've pitied
Fall to their knees in suffering,

With the silent jabs into
What we all call a heart.

Tearing it to pieces
Without a soul knowing.

Why try to understand?

Why give a damn.

From the start,
This has gone on.

You may see it now
But don't try to know.
Not until those you've pitied,
Become those whom you love.
