Empathy Road

Empathic travel along life’s Road

Walking in shoes not owned.

All perspective other than own

To allow your mind to feel,

To touch, to know that other

The love of child by mother,

The loyal stance of brother,

The ernest lament of another.

To walk in shoes not my own

The weary heart alone.

Joy filled sunshine of family life

Heartache of family strife.

Ups and downs. Ins and outs.

The raving lunatic that shouts.

Can you step out of life that’s yours

And feel momentarily someone else’s cause.

To dare from insular shell to crawl

To feel for someone else’s fall.

To share happiness with no jealous trait.

To be a solid empathic mate.

This is Empathy Road.
