There’s a space between what’s said and what’s heard… (another poem)

There’s a gap between the writer and the reader
The listener and the speaker
The giver and the receiver

There’s a space between the meaning and the words
What’s said and what’s heard
What’s alleged and occurred

Understood and what’s meant
received and what’s sent
The action vs. the intent

Communication can lead to frustration
It’s hard to feel good when you’re misunderstood
Hate that darn, gaping gap
‘tween what’s real and abstract

So what’s the solution?
What can be done?
Should we try or surrender?
Can this battle be won?
..
It’s a tough transition; an imperfect, uncertain change
To try and speak the same language, be on the same page
But that’s why we’re here, right? That’s part of the test.
Sounds cheesy, I know, but just do your best!

none of us should see salvation.”

-Portia (from Shakespeare’s ‘The Merchant of Venice’)

Come unto Christ, and be perfected in him…

and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness,

and love God with all your might, mind and strength,

then is his grace sufficient for you

Think about these ideas…

PS.  “Censorship” is a very interesting topic and one on which I have lots of thoughts.  Stay.  Tuned.

Started as a flicker, meant to be a flame…
