Compassion:To Experience Suffering is to Understand Suffering

compassion, poverty, care of the needy
Compassion says to help the needy

I am badly bruised but not broken

From the depths of my pain still I rise

A gentle whisper, my mind has spoken

Do not let your spirit be killed by this fight




So, reach inside and muster your energy

Pessimism destroyed, made way for positive energy

The scars of this battle will tell your tale

Because such a fight will always leave a trail



Through your afflictions you’ll find compassion

When others suffer, you’ll understand

Instead of turning away from the needy

Sharing and caring will come to you naturally



You’ll think twice before ignoring,

The pleas of the poor, and suffering

Instead of disqualifying with the usual scorn

You’ll help them find a way to overcome
