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
