The Empath

She carries the pain of others
On her shoulders.
She sits so close to the grieving
That their tears wet her face too,
Her soles are cracked
From putting herself in the shoes of others,
Her eyes stay open at night
Pondering the traumas of those she has come across,
Her mind scouring the earth
For a place to lay down the tragedy of others
In hopes to uncover a better story
