Life Lesson #Umpteen from The School of Emmy

 

To walk in someone else’s shoes

is often our intent

but when we say “me too”

“not you” is what we meant.

“Me too” implies I’ve worn your shoes

and walked a mile therein

but I never have and never will

I don’t live in your skin.

“Me too” springs all too easy

from lips of listener

who doesn’t want to listen

but be the raconteur.

Emmy begs to show us

sometimes we must admit

“me too” is incommodious:

the other’s shoes don’t fit.

 

 

Thanks to photographer Patrick Mesterharm

and, of course, to Emmy.

“Me too” has been on my mind and I’m grateful to Emmy for her insights.

More in another post.

  1. Cute photo of Miss Emmy but serious words. ‘Me Too’ seems to have turned the camera around to a selfie. I must admit, I’m not paying attention anymore.
