Compassion Is

A Plentiful gift
healer of widening rift
why must we callously choose
to harden hearts thus friendships lose?

It costs nothing
extending a little loving
sympathies but a waif eaten
empathy lingers it's place unbeaten

In this life
comes trouble and strife
mercies lent brings good cheer
whilst indifference brings about a tear

We all need
for humans all bleed
no matter what your trouble
ignorance pays us out in double

Time ticks on
too soon is gone
waste it in selfish pursuits
look not someday for riper fruits

Change is now
be it resolutions vow
compassion is our greatest treasure
entrusted us, at his Majesty's pleasure!
