Understandably

Understandably, not everyone can experience what others do,

But everyone, can still pull through, to get this point of view,

And get the idea, of what they need to do.

No need to waste time on useless things

And be controlled by a bunch of strings.

Society has an image of everyone,

And that image they have, can not be undone.

No matter what truth we feed them to not believe,

They are so blocked out to perceive, what there is to receive.

Understandably, not everyone can get what others do.

It’s an art to absorb everything and not fall through.

With some other idea or action that is brighter than a preach,

To stick with an idea through thick and thin, keeping it just in reach,

Is something to be proud of and awarded for.

And should acquire an encore.

Some don’t understand that things end up harder than they seem,

So they leave their dream, and join back in the mainstream.

Where there is comfort and security, and no tough times.

But sometimes that’s what you just need to move in between the lines.

To go your separate way and do what you do,

Accomplish things that are out of the blue,

Things that you're not sure you want to go through.
