I Wish I Understood

I wish I understood the undeniable attraction that sadly brings about silence after releasing my dreams and wishes. I thought it was obvious how much I enjoy you, but I'm trying to keep my expectations low.

I wish I understood why I was in such a hurry to grow up when I was little, because being an adult isn't all it's cracked up to be sometimes.

I wish I understood why people say "distance makes the heart grow fonder." It just makes me crazy!

I wish I understood the ability to appreciate my skin when I was in my 20's. Growing older brings more lines and the need to take care of it more.

I wish I understood why there has to be a "class level" in the world. Why can't the money be equally spread out to everyone?

I wish I understood how cell phones work and how airplanes fly.

I wish I understood why things I believed in my teens were different from that of my 2o's, and why the things I believed to be true in my 20's seem not to matter to me in my 30's.

I wish I understood why two people were supposed to meet in a place called Rancho Cucamonga.

I wish I understood the hidden meaning of some of the songs from the 50's, 60's, and 70's.

I wish I understood why most good things in life are hard.

I wish I understood what that look in your eye means.

I wish I understood why people are drawn to others' pain.

I wish I could understand and speak Pig Latin.

I wish I understood why some people are more driven by the dollar than the heart.

I wish I understood why it's raining in California and snowing in Georgia.

I wish I understood why there is still prejudices against people groups.

I wish I understood the concept of "it just takes one."
