Spin-a-verse: Poetry Challenge

The Gift of Empathy

Prompt: Empathy

I cannot give you wealth 

For I don’t have it.

I cannot bring back time 

For I don’t own it. 

I’d rather not give you advice 

It’s just that, I am not that wise. 


On the days you get lonely 

I will be there,

To give you company.

And on the days you forget to be kind to yourself, 

I will knock on your door 

And bring you 

The gift of empathy.
