Walking in Someone's Shoes
Other people's problems
May be worse than yours or not,
A question of perspective
Which those outside haven't got.
It really isn't possible
To walk in someone's shoes
Because the paths they follow
Wouldn't be the ones you'd choose.
We're stuck with our own hurdles
Which we'll either crash or clear,
Struggles harder to surmount
Than how to others they appear.
