Try To Understand.

by Sally Snow

Age Group: Adult

You think you are talking to me but
you are really talking to yourself.
Try to unserstand.
I believe the truth will help.

You looked right at her and said,
"this is ***ing bullsh*t."
But she don't give a ***.

We looked at each other and
shook our heads slightly.
You made insinuating remarks, but
it was always a joke.

When they questioned her
she talked earnestly of her
innocence, apparently oblivious of
the fact that she just
contradicted statements she had
previously given.

At first she denied even knowing, but
she was getting progressively
more tense. The shock of the
ordeal showed on her face and
she simply refused to believe.

We had a good reason to be nervous.
With every day that passed
there seemed to be a little
more trouble.

I asked her why, if she was
innocent, she didn't just
cooperate and tell us the truth.
She said she could't really do that.

You are very hesitant to
talk about the way things
are supposed to be. The
memory of betrayal sneaks up
and confronts you when you
least expect it and it is almost
impossible for you to really let go.

She had taken everything you
had to give her, but
that wasn't enough.
That wasn't near enough.

I began to wonder a little
but she said she did not want to talk
about anything. She was
feeling sorry for herself.

I can't remember everything, but
she said a couple of things
that were a little bit screwy,
you know, that just didn't make
sense. Then she
slipped again when she tried to
explain the situation. She's
not telling us everything. She's
holding back and she says
she doesn't know why.

Have you ever had anything
happen to you that was so
frightening or so wonderful
that you can close your eyes
and picture it in your mind?
Try to understand.

It can go away, but you
can never get rid of it.
It is in your blood system.
It's something we have no
control over and it feels
like a dream from which
we are just leaving.

I will be stubborn and
stand up for what I
believe in. I'm with you
no matter what, dear friend.
I believe the truth will help.
