The Empath (poem)

Born with a gift
Sometimes it causes a rift
Sometimes a lift

Some say it’s all in the mind
Could be a crime
All will know in time

Always present
Sometimes I resent
Always hesitant

For the feelings I feel
The emotions I peel
Are all very real

From around the block or around the globe
These feelings are sometimes quite cold
This statement may be quite bold
Emotions can be hard to hold

For I am an empath
I did not choose this path
But I have done the math
I feel the pain and the wrath

The need to help everyone fills me every day
The overload sometimes get in the way
But still I do not sway

More empathy is what this world needs
Only we can sew the seeds
Only we can mow the weeds
I wish more would do good deeds.
