To Understand - Poem by Kelvin Tam

2 understand is not 2 c
not 2 touch
or with any sense we r blessed wif,
but,
2 experience..

2 understand pain,
u must experience it,
how it burns liek fire,
or how it stings liek poisoned needles,

2 understand luv,
u must experience luv,
how it grows,
how it hurts us....

2 understand life,
we must experience life,
4 we du not understand at da beginnin,
or da middle,
but at da end,
when it flashes b4 our eyes,
tat is when we trueli
understand.....
