When she was younger,
she would burst into tears,
for no reason it seemed.

The excruciating pain
restricted her lungs
and made her heart sore.

Pains from previous lives,
for most of her adolescence,
emotions she could not explain.

This cloud burst would last for days
but now she understands
it was not all her own pain.

Sensitive to those around her,
their heartache she felt,
their tears were her tears.

She has better control now,
can differentiate between
her own emotions and the sadness of others.

She felt deeply then and still does.
