Empathy


I always wonder why
When you look down into my eyes
My feeling swiftly changed between happiness and sorrow
And tears begin to fall
I’m not you and you are not me
But your pain becomes my pain
When you are sad, I’m the one who foolish cry
When you are wounded, my heart is hurt more
When someone is unkind to you
I want to hit that man hard
Your anger becomes my fire
Your horror becomes my nightmare
I’m not you and you are not me
But why could you wonder?
Your joy is my joy
When you smile, blossoms rain in my heart
When you reach your dream, my soul shines more
When someone finally understand you
I want to hug that man tight
Your laugh becomes my air
Your pleasure becomes my treasure
When you look deep into my eyes
I can feel your emotion as clearly as mirror
Until you breaking this magic wall

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
