empathy shoes

i will make
myself small

and fit in
my big empathy
shoes

i am listening,
i can fit you too,
and yes you as well

i can fit in,
your worries about
that new dress in the mall

i can fit in,
your pain, your fights
with your friend

yes, lend me
your hand,
i can fit you in
within my empathy shoes

i will make myself small
and fit you in,
your wounds
and your hurt,

and your happiness,
your dreams,
your dreams

oh wait,
it is claustrophobic,
there is no breathing space

please get your own empathy shoes
i cannot fit you
in

i cannot make myself small anymore
