Flawed Understandings

If you know me by my presence,
You know me by my appearance.
If you know me by appearance,
You probably don't know about my absence.
If you know me by my absence,
You don't know my reason.
If you know my reason,
You don't know my struggle.
If you know my struggles,
You don't know my shoes.
If you know my shoes,
You don't who I am.
