Understand Me

Clarity – a clear foundation of understanding.
Educating is facilitating a peace within.
A rapid settling of unease.
Precise, clear knowing deposited at each other’s feet.
I’ll speak to you, spell it out, show you.
Without a doubt, will you get me?
Show me, believe me, like me in your understanding.
Now you do the same.
Let me hear you.
Will you, can you?
No lies.
Can we connect; belong to each other? No more isolation.
No more time-filling in the friendship club.
Can you be a graceful presence in my space with clarity?
This is love.
