I watched him walk bare feet on that rough rocky path
And my soles felt the burning pain from my toes to my heel
I can hear her silent cry through the walls, covering her mouth suppressing the pain
And I can feel the suffocation of trying to tolerate the pain of a heart break
Is it a curse to feel the emotions around me?
He smiles with tears in his eyes as his daughter hugs him for the first time after a long time
And I feel the tear run down my cheek to the curve of my mouth
She holds her baby for the first time after when life nearly robbed her from her gift
And I can feel joy fill a void in my heart
Is it a gift to feel the emotions around me?
Did life seasoned me so that I can feel?
Did God give me words so that I can speak for these feelings?
If this is my purpose then empathy is my greatest gift
