I Realize - Poem by Noemi Lee

Im not sure how to feel

I don't understand
Why you dont understand

Do others equally
misunderstand me
yet politely nod?

Are the rapt gazes, and
slack jaws
actually trying to check

Why is it that
you don't understand me?

I am slowly
and sadly
coming to realize
that maybe you just
don't want to.

I do not mind telling you
Because something tells me
this you will understand.
