Intent and Poise

If I wasn’t so empathetic

I know I wouldn’t even care

or better yet, I would hardly be aware

of the impending essence

of those near and far

that collide with my vessel

so connected we are

this makes mention of intent and poise

this clairaudience picks up the voice

and the vibe within and out

that is even too loud to shout

yet vibrates to the sound of a chorus rhythm

and echoes throughout the veins of those listening

Courageous Empathy

This dream I had last night was

imprinted to set my soul aflight

So I would carry the seed

of courageous empathy

So my spirit could grasp

what is unfolding around me

With the courage instilled

to see my heart through

Mixed with the embedded

empathy so I knew

What has come together

for this flight of feather

To set my direction high

with all routes pointing

towards the sky
