On Empathy

I feel your pain dear human,

but it’s not mine to hold.

It’s sacred to you:

your wisdom to build with,

to help you re-model and re-mould.

I will crawl alongside you,

through the fire, dirt, and all,

And I will walk with you slowly,

until you recall

The essence of your being,

And the power that you hold,

And I’ll watch as you stand bravely,

weaving your story into gold.
