Understanding

What does it mean to understand? When defined it means to perceive or grasp the idea of. But what does it truly mean.
Do we really understand?
Do we really grasp the idea?
Can our minds truly see and perceive immediately?
No.
Our minds often misread,
find it uncomprehending,
Don’t “get it”.
Nothing can be read by a glance yet we do it anyway.
Are you really better than that person?
Can you really call a person ugly and not feel a thing?
Is it really funny to call someone fat just because you are skinny?
Would you want to be the one thought lesser of?
Called ugly?
Laughed at because of your size?
No, you wouldn’t want that, yet you do it to others in spite of the emotional pain you are causing.
Haven’t you ever thought about what your saying before it leaves your lips?
Of course not. You don’t care what your doing.
That person may have been on the brink and you pushed them. They commit suicide and you pretend to care.
Guilty.
You are guilty.
Guilty of shunning that person just because they are different.
Guilty of calling them weird or cussing your hurtful words in their face.
Guilty of all the terrible things you did to make them hate you, hate themselves, and hate life.
So, What are you going to do about it. Your hurtful words have already been said. Are you going to say your sorry? You know that it is an empty word because you are just going to do it again.
Do you _truly understand now?
Or did you just read this and say “That’s not me”, “who wrote this a person who can’t take a little joke”, “Whatever this was a waste of my time” or “Haha. this person is pathetic.”
If so, you are ugly.
You are the lesser one.
You are the black-hearted, soulless, unkind, insensitive, apathetic person that does every one of these terrible things.
You don’t Understand.
And, If you don’t take heed of these words, You never will.

Artist's Description

The truth about what goes on in a school. Be it private, catholic, public, christian or any other. It is what I and many others have experienced and heard about. Those kids that think they are popular or their parents think they are perfect angels can be described by this. Sometimes it is someone who is rich or brown-nosed or in government or all three. Either way I feel it is my duty to tell the truth.

If you have the time please comment and tell me if you understood and what you thought.
