I Don’t Understand!!!

 I don’t understand

Why we can’t have differences without hatred.

Why we can’t have disagreements without belittlements.

Why we can’t love a higher spirit, but each in our own way.

Why we can’t feed the homeless but can rebuild the world.

Why we can’t find charity for our neighbors but can pray for a stranger.

Why we can’t see our own faults but can so easily find them in others.

Why we can’t see the good but so readily point out the bad.

I don’t understand

Why love doesn’t return the gift of generosity.

Why we profess to value honesty then lie to protect ourselves.

Why success can’t be won without deceit.

Why we abuse the world but cherish possessions.

Why what people say isn’t what they mean.

I don’t understand

Why we complain more about what we don’t have instead of seeing what we’ve already been given.

Why we want so much when it’s usually the simple things that make us happy.

Why we try to be someone and something we aren’t instead of celebrating who we truly are.

Why we aren’t more thankful for the people in our lives instead of the things in our lives.

    I have thought appreciating the things we have protect us from accpreciating people who we might lose, up till I realized that there’s nothing like appreciating the people who are worth it, and those I call the irreplaceble.

    Qwaider:
    Don’t you think that you over simplified it??? Does that give us the excuse to do what we are doing?? I don’t think so…
    Dima:
    I totally agree with that, oh my god I love you for that.
    Jano:
    thank you dear.

    When I say things are complex, I don’t know HOW anyone could consider this simplification :)
