These are my musings and observations on my daily life, loves and the laughter that are all a part of my experience of living now in the shires of England.

That most difficult thing - Poetry by Ken Walsh

That most difficult thing-

To see something

From someone else’s point of view.

To let go of ourselves enough

To be able to care,

To let go enough

To be aware,

To let go enough

To sit still and listen

Intently –

Taking it all in ...

The problem,

The person,

(His background)

The others involved –

Our own prejudices.

To get inside someone else’s skin

And feel what they feel,

Their joy, their sorrow,

As though it were our own –

To know.

Ken Walsh (from his collection – Sometimes I Weep)
