An uneducated man

Misunderstandings occur sometimes when using words


An uneducated man I am, of limited vocabulary.
When using words, always needing a dictionary.

Sometimes after searching out a words meaning.
I find that I have misused, making it demeaning.

Leading to much confusion for those who read,
proving that higher education, in actuality I need.

Using large words trying to sound sophisticated,
causing misunderstanding, reactions stimulated.

When another reads, meaning often misconstrued.
Trying to explain frequently alters another's mood.

Furthering frustration, causing more contamination,
thoughts breaking down, creating total consternation.

Then to the other side things begin to be assumption,
things really start another way, needing resumption.

Misunderstandings cause most world strife, I believe.
Sometimes folding ones hand the only option, and leave.

A battle won, does not always in the end, win the war.
The hurt, scars, tears, blood let, never even the score.

Order of the day, may be find a better dictionary.
Or maybe I should take up playing Pictionary.
