Reaching Out

There is nothing more humbling than hearing the difficulties of others,
Than being the person whom somebody else is turning to,
Hearing another’s tears, as they’re experiencing something you’ve felt,

It’s shattering, heart-breaking, a helpless feeling,

I would go to the ends of the Earth to help somebody out of it,
To listen to them talk about it,

Afterwards, it becomes easier to go outside of myself and to transcend my own difficulties,
If just for a while,
To feel that same strength and compassion,
Reaching out to myself.
