Sharing Shoes: An empathy day poem about walking a mile in someone else's shoes

Updated: 3 days ago

It's nearly Empathy Day! So I decided to write an empathy day poem. Please check out this website!

"Walking in Someone Else's Shoes" may be the best subject you'll ever take.

Swapping Shoes


I wore your shoes

and walked a mile

They didn’t fit

They weren’t my style


They hurt a bit

but made me smile

and when I’d worn them

for a while


I smelt your fear

I touched your dreams

I felt your hope

I heard your screams

We swapped our shoes

One day in time

I found your way

and you found mine
