Can you imagine that you are wholly empathic?

Being swamped by others emotions, is like being hit by traffic

When you are young it manifest itself like pain

So many feelings wearing boots, running through your brain

If you are lucky, you will learn to control this deluge of information

Become an island of calm amongst an angry nation

However, if you cannot manage this emotional strain

The chances are you will end up insane

Never knowing which feelings are really yours

Unable to speak openly, trapped by society's mores

There is much which science cannot answer or simply denies

If it cannot be, observed or measured, they are deaf to the cries

Of those poor creatures, who with this curse are infected?

Aware that on a different and higher plane, we are all totally connected
