I know you struggle with communication,
You search for words and actions to convey
All you feel and think, all that is within you,
Everything you find no way to say.
I know I struggle too with this same problem
Despite the fact that words come all too easily,
Sometimes it’s not the words that are the problem
But knowing which ones tell the truths for me.
I know we cannot always speak or reach out,
Locked inside ourselves as we all are,
Begging for a greater wordsmith’s charter
To reveal the core that reunites the stars.
I know affliction of this kind is legend,
Tracks volumes written of all history,
Permeates the core of all our suffering,
Lack of understanding, search for key.
