I Understand

I understand what it is to feel pain,
I understand when you're treated like dirt.
I understand when you're out in the rain,
I understand what it's like to be hurt.

When you ache inside, and don't know why,
I understand.
When you lower you're head, and start to cry,
I understand.
When you know you will fail, but you still try,
I understand.
When you shed a tear, and hug good-bye,
I understand.
      
I know what it feels like,
To be pushed away.
I know how it hurts,
No matter what they say.
I know what it's like,
To fight all the way.
And I know how pain,
Just won't go away.

I understand why you feel helpless,
I understand why you want to hide.
I understand why you feel lonely,
I understand when you don't have pride.
I understand what it's like to be you,
I understand when you feel like crying.
I understand your frustration inside,
I understand when you feel like dying.

But precious, please don't cry.
Hold you're chin up, and dry your eyes.
Everything will be okay.
There will be no more good-byes.

You have done a real nice job with your words here.
I hope he or she takes your advise because
it sounds like good advise to me.
Actully it sounds like the advise of a mom?

One Who Understands-

If only more could 'understand'.
The closing is uplifting.  It's a good
thing to lift someone when they've been
misunderstood.
