empathy is

 

sharing a blanket,

in good times and bad

 

entering into suffering

without flinching when they push

you away, with words

and other flying objects

 

moving towards the pain, facing conflict

you start to realize has nothing to do with you,

as you seek, somehow

to empathize

 

THIS POEM APPEARS IN MY BOOK Approach
