Misunderstood Feelings

You thought I found it funny
Some sort of dark humour lining my lips
I need to smile at odd times
Because to cry publicly is unacceptable
Your words touch the surface
But these scars run deep

You honestly thought I think that
If you want to guess my thoughts
Then here take them all
I know it hurts, I know you try
I know you're kind
I think sometimes I know it more than you

Lets assume that
All your assumptions are wrong
And yes I will write poetry
About the insignificant
Because perspective gives weight
It's little things like this that tie me down

Curiosity turns to cynicism so quickly
Sometimes our kindness fades
We assume, that little assumptions
Are unnoticed
We don't know how this world
Shaped each and every one of us
We don't know
The damage of our ignorance
Is fleeting
Is it pride that blocks our throats
I wonder why it is so hard to ask
To seek clarification, elaborate please
We do not know the secrets of the others heart
We barely know our own
There are scars, wounds that still bleed
To ask, to care just a little more
We don't know how deep
passing words will cut
Be nice
Be nicer
Assume good
Ask about uncertainty
Learn from anothers soul
Do not teach it what is
For it already knows

O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin... 
Surah Al hujarat

And by the sun and its brightness;
And by the moon as it follows it (the sun);

And by the day as it shows up (the sun's) brightness;
And by the night as it conceals it (the sun);
And by the heaven and Him Who built it;
And by the earth and Him Who spread it,
And by Nafs (Adam or a person or a soul, etc.), and Him Who perfected him in proportion;

Then He showed him what is wrong for him and what is right for him;
Indeed he succeeds who purifies his ownself
Surah Shams

  1. Negative assumptions can definitely cause a lot of problems and you have captured that concept here beautifully as always, MashaAllah.
