How often we fall trap set into the brackets of misunderstanding. Being misunderstood. A glitch in communication. A failure of acceptance and awareness. A decryption of prideful superiority. Those of us who so easily on a daily do the misunderstanding. And then those of us who are the misunderstood. Incorrectly read one may say.

Do you ever just feel as though you yourself are a misunderstanding? Unclear, austere. And not just the ones round you doing the misinterpreting and misunderstanding but you, yourself – you seem to have misunderstood the entire game of life. Every detail of yourself and how you are where you are now.

It was all a dream and you my dear, with all the teachings and schoolings, simply have misunderstood every last grandiose and minute thing.

And there you’ve been living your days misunderstood. And you scream and cry silently and quite literally as you stand arms wide and open and still are read simply as: MISUNDERSTOOD.


After all, aren’t we all living the days of misunderstanding and are misunderstood. Color, gender, race, age, political, cultural, textual, factual, sociable and financial. We’re all misunderstood. Our awareness levels just vary. Perhaps the worse state to succumb to is being locked in a state of misunderstanding. The unbalance feelings and fallings, presented full of fault, mentally and emotionally. You misunderstood their feelings for you and that of yourself. Missing the stops and steps along the way, the decisions you made, grinding the day to day, qualifications imagined, potentials not reached or out of reach. The time you have lost trying to decipher your soup bowl of talents, where to direct the arrowed lines and not having read the best seller, “Book of Life Transitionals,” imprisoned in your cell of misunderstanding. Gifts not transferable to monetary acceptance and contributing living standards. And you beg to understand, then what exactly is the definition of: misunderstood?




improperly understood or interpreted.


not appreciated.

How often do you feel unappreciated? Let’s leave this one short and sweet: Always. 
verb (used with object), misunderstood,misunderstanding.


to take (words, statements, etc.) in a wrong sense;understand wrongly.


to fail to understand or interpret rightly the words or behavior of.


failure to understand correctly; mistake as tomeaning or intent.


a disagreement or quarrel.
What more to say then the concept and state of being misunderstood is one that has no ending, and maybe no actual beginning. Perhaps it has always existed and simply transferred its quarreling of uncertainty from one to another, from day to decade and life to life. Nina Simone is most correct as she so eloquently and classically and effortlessly drops it and the mic with, “Don’t Let me be Misunderstood.” I try so hard.
[Verse 1]
Baby you understand me now
If sometimes you see that I’m mad
Doncha know no one alive can always be an angel?
When everything goes wrong, you see some bad
But I’m just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood

[Verse 2]
Ya know sometimes baby I’m so carefree
With a joy that’s hard to hide
And then sometimes again it seems that all I have is worry
And then you’re bound to see my other side

But I’m just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood

[Verse 3]
If I seem edgy
I want you to know
I never mean to take it out on you
Life has its problems
And I get more than my share
But that’s one thing I never mean to do

Cause I love you
Oh baby
I’m just human
Don’t you know I have faults like anyone?

Sometimes I find myself alone regretting
Some little foolish thing
Some simple thing that I’ve done

I’m just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood
Don’t let me be misunderstood

I try so hard
So please don’t let me be misunderstood
