Understand

Doreene Felder 1967 (Phila.)



People sometimes unsure
Of what they are really asked
They will then do what they think you meant
When they sometimes ask you
Still can't figure it out
A door is left open
Room now for doubt
When patience
Is really thought of
And you want to help out
Be considerate of others
Please don't shout
Make room for improvement
Start a positive movement.
