If We Could Switch Shoes

If you could step into my shoes
Would you see the things I see,
Would your head feel dizzy like mine is now
Or would you still walk easily?

If I resisted like you do
Would I be this wreck of a girl,
Do you think I'd have turned out stronger?
... A lighter step, a happy twirl

If I was as white as you are
(Or as you seem to be)
Would I be someone's angel too?
Like the angel you are to me.

If you could step in my shoes
Would you understand my pain,
Would you have fallen just as hard
Or do you think it was all in vain?

Take a look through my eyes
And tell me what I'm doing wrong
Tell me how to fix it all
Whether the situation be short or long.

If you could step in my shoes
You'd see much better than I
Your beauty, wisdom, pure intent
Is enough to make me cry

If I could step in your shoes
I wonder what I'd see,
Would the world become more beautiful;
Does it all depend on me?

    I have often pondered these things in the same way. We cannot judge someone else, until we have walked a mile in their shoes/lives. We may all have much more insight and understanding afterwards. Nicely said !! Ps.....I have just discovered my placement in your last rhyme contest....I'm so sorry to be late in saying thanks very much for the recognition !! Thank you!!
