The real meaning of it

Thought it as a curse,

Being able to feel so deeply,

Able to get in someone else’s shoes,

To feel the pain like they do,

Oh these emotions,

Making me mad,

Am I fragile,

Should be handled with care?


Then one day it shattered,

The cage I made,


All gone,

The only thing stood ,



I knew it was a gift not pain…

  1. “Then one day it shattered/the cage I made.” I love this line and poem. Fantastic imagery and life lessons learned. It’s amazing the cages our defense mechanisms build to protect us-unwittingly. Well done! I love this and hope you submitted this!
