There are people out there
Who just do not see
Beyond their own reality
Do not know that others cry
Nor would they care
They would not ask why
They live inside a world of “me”
No room for sensitivity
Their boundaries end
Where their skin begins
Other people extensions
But not let in

Wow!!!! You have to be a really sensitive and compassionate person to feel this and manage to put those feelings into words so beautifully. Karen, you are very talented. How long have you been writing poetry?

thank you elfie...i started writing in a more serious vein 5 or so years ago, to help mend a broken heart. writing is a mirror to one's heart, and a great way to heal and grow.
