Understanding each other takes more than words.
You need to get one’s frame of mind.
For if you just call people nerds,
you’ll never learn what you could find.
The first step would be to abandon
your own old paths along your brain,
leave room for new ones then at random
and cherish insights that you gain.
The feeling of respect is key
to understand a different mind.
So with the help of empathy
you start to see where you were blind.
