Someone else

If, for whatever reason
You stop yourself in your tracks
Use this trick

Tell yourself you are someone else
Give her a name, a story
Make her a friend

We extend so easily
To others
Might as well make one you

Infuse your kindness
Cheer her on
Until you realize
You share the same body

It feels good to be cared for
Becoming more familiar
Get used to including you
