Try Empathy – Friday 1st October 2010

Try Empathy

if you find it hurtful
the things i say
imagine how it felt for me
could you try
try empathy?
if you find it dark
and lonely
in that head of yours
imagine others
and how they opened doors
with a struggle
with friends
with a hug and a cuddle
if you find it hurtful
if all of this is a muddle
and it seems hard to explain
the road is never truly empty
it’s just hard to share pain
well, sometimes,
so, if what i say
is truly so hurtful
imagine how it felt for me
could you try, try empathy
