You may never have the thick skin they will forever tell you to grow, but you wouldn’t have it any other way. Because with your power comes the ability to touch a child’s hand, you see the spring in his step amplify, and you know you have made him all the stronger, even if for only a moment.
And these small moments, of lifting others by sharing their afflictions, expand, one drop at a time, until the ripples of a creek fight through the hard, drought-ridden cracks. And then, one day, the trickle accumulates and grows so magnanimous that it brims through the kind laced eyes and overflows. You are feeling, merging into one, with the suffering around you.
You speak for the silenced one. You speak for the air, you speak to the leaves that fall off the trees. You touch the souls of the downtrodden, the ignored, the ones hungry for love. You will not stop shedding your tears until they have washed away the world’s darkness.
Know that the others do not mean to leave you in the dust, nor do they intentionally thrust you into the fire without a helping hand. They do not mean to cause you to be the sole voice screaming the injustices from the mountaintop.
They simply do not know how to consciously give words to these deep-felt emotions. They cannot fathom sweeping the dust to form the bones of what matters. They do not understand what has been brimming underneath, nor can they hear their heart-song’s murmur.
At least, not yet.
But with time, I believe, we will all, gently, give way to the song within, and slowly reveal the flower as yet budding in the deepest interior of our core.
Slowly yet gradually you will bloom into that flower that spreads the fragrance of love, that the world so desperately needs to smell.
You are one of the ancient souls which has seasoned through the numerous hard times of turmoils. Do not doubt your mission here. We need you, in all of your strength and lack-of-glory.
We need you, fearless, indomitable soul to continue your song for all those who have forgotten they have a voice.
