Just do it

by Em   Oct 5, 2017

It's difficult to feel so alone
in a place with many people
as you feel like screaming

you feel like pleading with them
for help but there's nothing
they can do until you admit it

they can't even pretend to understand
if you don't reach out to them

so let them see you cry
let them hear you scream
go the whole hog and
let them see you fail

for after all we're all human
and one day they'll need help to

from someone who knows how it feels to feel

    i'm always struck by the honesty of your writing and this is no exception. the craving of empathy is something we can all resonate with at one stage of our lives or another (or perhaps our whole lives ;) ). nice write.

    Empathy is always so much more helpful than sympathy. Our experienced pain helps us help others. This is such a wise piece with a profound message. Good stuff Em x
