Understand - 12th Good Word in the Good Words Project (Poem)

Updated on October 2, 2016

The 12th Good Word in the Good Words Project.

The 12th word in the series of "Good Words' given by a fellow Hubber - I pledge to write a poem for each good word she gives us each week. --- Thanks to Jo_Goldsmith's "Good Words" project.

Each week Jo Goldsmith gave us a word,

That her fellow Hubbers should learn and Understand

Not just it's meaning but to live by that word was her plan

Also help us grow as writers, humans and friends.


Understand - The 12th Good Word - In the Good Words Project.

Understand!

© by Shyron Shenko 4/17/2014


To understand is knowledge

Of the how, the why, the way

That we should live our lives

Each and every day


To understand is to know

When we see a grieving heart

We must seek to find a way

To help the healing start


When we understand

Just what went wrong?

It's that understanding

That will help to make us strong


We need to understand

What gives us strength?

So we can stand alone

And face our trials and tribulations ....on our own

Understand - Jeremy Camp

      The Stages of Me, thank you so much for the compliment and comments.

      Yes, I agree a lot of people misconstrue other people's understanding actions or take in a different context. But what is important is our understanding of our own intent.

      Blessings to you.

      Beautifully true, so important to understand the hearts of others. Such a simple task and yet so many of us fail to see the heart behind the actions of others. People often act according to the joy or pain in their heart, and often the action is misconstrued. Beautiful, simple words on understanding here. Have a blessed day :)

      Hi Shyron,

      I really loved your second stanza there about understanding when we see a grieving heart and then doing something about it. So beautiful. As relates to the last stanza, being I need a Savior, personally, I could never stand alone through my trials and tribulations. I know I can call on Him to see me through all trails this life has to through at me. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." I just would never even think of going through any trial or tribulation by myself when I do not have to do so. We can be strong in Him for sure.

      Up and more

      Blessings

      I think each of your poems in this series is better than the one before. True understanding is when we can put ourselves in the place of another person -- empathy -- and you have expressed that so well here. Once we understand, then comes the need for mercy and forgiveness so that when we need those things it may be offered to us also.

      Hope all is well with your and yours. So lucky to be able to call you my best friend. Talk soon.

      To be able to have an understanding heart is a wonderful thing. I say at least try to undersand any given situation. Beautiful Shyron!
