Empathy

Written by: Richard Lamoureux

The gift of empathy
Lets me walk in your shoes
I can feel happiness
Experience your blues

Although it's just a glimpse
It helps me understand
The choices that you make
Are not always pre-planned

With all this new knowledge 
I can cut you some slack
Even though I'm angry
I don't only see black

Let's look at the problem
I know that you can change
At first it will be hard
New thinking can feel strange

This will give you freedom
Control over your voice
Your words can be a gift
By you making this choice
