It's Easy To Walk In Someone Else's Shoes - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It's easy to walk in someone else's shoes.
And to feel what it takes to place their footsteps...
With mistakes made.
To never look back with a moving forward unafraid.

Just ask anyone who has done that!
There are so many...
Standing on the sidelines with a giving of their opinion.

Ask anyone one of them to confront their own fears,
As others near watch...
Dissecting everything that someone else exposes,
While listening to those who oppose and show it.

It's easy to walk in someone else's shoes.
And yet...
As easy as it is,
Those heard passing their judgements...
Are not so quick to prove those shoes on them will fit.
