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.
