a 'poem' that came to mind after reading a few theories in development psychology. I'm not claiming this to be true to any of these theories.

I walked a mile in your shoes
took a travel down the lonesome road.
I thought myself bright for following
an allready set trail.
That's the way to go, I thought,
less trouble, less hardship.

I found myself at the end of the road
weary and distraught
oddly enough with no end in sight.
This trail's a let down; I thought,
not thinking it was a judgement
wich I could not make.

I was left to hobble down the road
in my shoes.
Much to my surprise, they turned out to be
a perfect fit.
How about that?

Elisabeth, I like this exercise where you have poetically gathered empirical data on psychological postulates. Try that mile in someone else's shoes and then by all means, walk it in your own shoes. Experience everything from your own perspectives and develop your unique stride in life. Anything less deprives you of the joys of living and self expression. Bravo! I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael

I find the poem charming for its deceptive creativity of thought. A statement of the obvious, of the familiar, and a truth on human nature. Very well done. It calls us to examine our own reference points.
