Said the world, “Sorry, I’ve got too much feel."
So she gave me twice as much, told me to deal.
Said I, “I’m sorry, it’s just too much."
And said the world, “Well, that’s too bad, and you can blame the world," and such.
So I waited it out a little bit longer.
Said the world, as I advanced in a rage, “It’ll make you stronger."
So I waited and waited, learned to want to live still, learned to want to die.
"Oh goodness, you can do it, please, please" said the world with a sigh.
And so that’s what it’s like, being an empath of the earth.
Having in my heart, all foreign emotions pure and swirled.
And I sift them like flour,
Keep the sweet and some of the sour,
But underneath I am bitter,
Not the first in a long line of “deal with it" emotion sitters.
So it’s been years, and what I’ve learned is never desired or simply yearned,
Don’t let yourself get burned.
Peel the world, let aching fingers soothe,
find the truth,
Don’t let your thoughts and words babble out uncouth.
So you harden and you crack,
Cave your stomach, arch your back.
Find its easier to hate than love.
But world, its worth it if you try.
