Living Everyone's Pain

When my back hurts, It’s because I carry the weight of the world on my shoulders, When my head hurts, It’s because I understand the world from everyone’s perspective, When my eyes can’t see anymore, It’s because I see everyone’s darkest fears emerging, When my feet are blistered, It’s because I walk several miles in shoes that don’t fit my feet, When my ears are ringing, It’s because I can hear everyone screaming their quietest secrets’, When my words are strange, It’s because I speak everyone’s unspoken thoughts, When my heart is broken, It’s because I am alone in this world living everyone’s [unacknowledged] pain.
