We wander through life basing knowledge on assumptions.
We assume that we know one based on our first impressions,
By the formalities they greet us with.
We assume that we understand someone based on the motive in their eyes.
We assume that we know a person,
Not based on the little things,
But based on the bigger picture.
You assumed you knew everything about me,
But the things you don't know,
The things that you failed to see,
Are the things I wished to exemplify in the eyes of you,
And in the eyes of others.
You didn't see that I tried,
Simple as my attempts may have been.
You ignored the compassion that lay beneath,
By your refusal to let me in.
You forgot that I am still human,
And both your feelings and mine,
Are one in the same.
You assumed you knew everything about me.
Yet there are so many things you don't know,
And you no longer have the chance to learn them.
