Understanding Oneself, Knowing Others
Understanding others is knowledge, they say,
To walk in their shoes, and see their way,
To see the world from a different view,
And comprehend their struggles anew.
To know their fears, to feel their pain,
To understand what they hope to gain,
To listen closely to their words,
And see the meaning that's not absurd.
For in knowing others, we gain insight,
Into the human condition, day and night,
Into the joys and the sorrows that we share,
Into the bonds that connect us everywhere.
But understanding oneself, that's the key,
To unlocking the mysteries of identity,
To knowing who we truly are,
And shining light on our own star.
To explore our fears and doubts,
And understand what life's about,
To uncover our passions and desires,
And light the flames of our inner fires.
For in knowing oneself, we find peace,
And learn to let our own souls release,
To grow and change and evolve each day,
And walk a path that's our own unique way.
So let us seek to understand others, true,
But let us not forget, in all we do,
That understanding ourselves is the key,
To unlocking our own true destiny.
