You Can Never Understand

You Can Never Understand

A Poem by Bidu Ibrahim

Poem on understanding

Paths cross
Jokes shared and stories told
But truly,
Others’ journey and hope 
You can never really fathom. 

Life’s a road
Every jolt’s one’s own, 
Life’s a shoe
Every pinch and bruise
Only the wearer can prove,
Life’s a breath
Its sweetness only one who can’t, can tell,
Life’s a divine mystery
No mortal can claim mastery,
Life’s a fingerprint 
Everyone’s a unique imprint, 
Life’s tough
Life’s rough
Another’s life’s easy to judge
But you WILL never understand,
You can never understand!
