Sunday 160 - Walk in my shoes


I tried on the shoes
but the fit wasn’t right.
Sloppy.
Then tight.
No matter the walking distance,
it was only empathy touching
imagination that opened my mind.

Walking naked and barefoot, adds an interesting dimension to the journey.

Awesome 160! "Empathy touching imagination" - a wonderful way to describe an attempt at understanding how another lives.

My 160 is up too!

Very nice MM, I like it. I think poetry is about waking people up to have empathy outside their own realm, loose or tight.
Mine is up

I'm not sure if I was suppose to post a 160 about the shoes so I went with what I should by the picture posted.

One hundred and sixty characters. This seems oddly familiar...

Empathy tried to touch my imagination and I told it to keep its hands to itself.

I appreciate when someone can make a bold, powerful statement using few words.

You did just that with this one.

Very fun Monkey Man. I found you through "What I should have said" & decided to take up the challenge of 160 characters.

Katherine said...

I love this Monkey Man. I am not 100% sure that I have understood it correctly but what I think is:
No one can judge another man/woman unless they have walked a mile in their shoes.
Or that we must all make our own path in life... one size does not fit all!
Thought provoking 160
