Just Because I Understand - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The disdain and your displeasure,
Have both been shown with equal venom.
Your point has been made.
And so has the confirmation of your tunnel vision.

But understand one thing...
My patience has nothing to do with you.
It is because of my patience,
Your limitations are more tolerated.

But that does not make you less the threat!

Just because I understand,
Does not mean I will be less protected.
Like I said...
Your limitations are more tolerated.
But that does not make you less the threat!

Just because I understand,
Does not mean I will be less protected.
