    UNDERSTANDING
    I’ve tried and tried
    To be so understanding
    I’ve stood upstanding
    Been so appreciative
    Sympathetic, empathetic
    When others have not been so supportive
    I’ve tried and tried
    But it makes me tired
    The wrangling, wrangling
    Jangling
    Of the tolerant tolerating the intolerant
    They just don’t seem to understand
    They’d rather do it underhand
    Even backhand
    Their indulgent
    Self-indulgence
    Not giving anyone a chance
    A voice, a choice
    Their voices drowning
    Faces frowning
    Self-indulgent just clowning
    Why must we be understanding?
    Or are we just being mis-understanding?
    To the misunderstood
    Who won’t let us be understanding!
    Their misunderstood
    Our easy-going nature
    Our easy-going stature
    We totally understand
    There is no underhandedness
    We just need the understanding
    We’re totally upstanding
    We have great sympathy!
    We show our empathy
    So why can we not be so understanding?
    Understanding we are different
    Yet some show indifferent
    It is not always the case to be totally
    Understanding
