EMPATHY (soundcloud song)

A haggard face,
In a foreign place
Navigates a hostile world
With a humble grace,
He’s not my enemy,
He could be you or me.

Could all people feel,
What it means to be,
Strangers in a land,
Where we’re refugees?
With kids in our arms,
With fear as company,
We’d need empathy.

It’s so very hard for
For those who have a home,
To understand the path these lost souls travel.
If your family’s fate rests in the hands of strangers,
You can’t go back the way you came,
You are citizens of no land.

There must be a way,
that we can see
The world through another’s eyes,
And realize
“it’s not just me?”
We’ve got company

Some will say,
“He’s the enemy,”
Though he is a stranger,
He looks like a friend to me,
When we live in fear,
We live in tyranny,
We don’t need fear…
We need empathy,
