Need of empathy [Poem]

Empathy is something we need more in the world.

Empathy will decrease conflicts.

Recognizing connection between our shared feelings and our shared human needs.

It can be frightening to feel another’s pain, yet we deeply know that we too would feel it in the same situation. Empathy doesn’t separate.

Giraffe talk is here to help us not sound like a jackal.

This is why we converse. Nonviolent communication sets out to increase empathy while it reports observations and makes requests of others. Quite simple.

We all share same universal needs, bonding us as humanity.

As we learn to resolve conflicts we must become empathetic to each other, without it we won’t reach understanding.
