The empath’s responsibility

Reach out to me.
Share your pain.
Show me the heartache
that eats at your soul.
Let my words soothe you.
Let my instincts guide you.
Bask for a while in understanding
that comes naturally to me.
Tell me your secrets.
Tell me your doubts.
Rest your worries in my lap,
there’s room for more.
I am a vessel, pour in your soul.
I will pour it back out;
stronger, wiser, prepared;
ready to face adversity again,
strengthened by friendship
and gentle advice.
To possess empathy holds responsibility.
I must give my gift away.
Reach out to me.
