We Can Try

We all have struggles, and
flaws, difficulties, direction,
  and dilemmas.
Not all of us have
the ability to deal with
circumstances or conditions
others may encounter.
   We can try.
We can even accommodate,
often, if we have an open mind.
Sometimes we can even accept,
but
  acceptance
    is not
 understanding.
Acceptance is a good thing;
maybe that is the least
we can strive for. Wouldn’t
   a sense of understanding
 go a lot further?
Everybody, at some time, is
going through something.
We cannot know the battle
someone else is facing, and
accepting things as they are
   can make life
    a little easier.
 But wouldn’t trying
 to understand
make it easier for everyone?
