I love so much about this poem! :heart_eyes: This line in particular really jumped out at me:

“Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.”

This is such a beautiful way to describe empathy- of learning how to listen to others and understand that everyone is the main character in their own story. If you listen, you’ll find that everyone has a tale worth telling! :open_book: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Thanks so much for sharing this poem, @Garnet! It brought a smile to my face :blush::sun:
