Compassion or compounded passion
Originates in understanding
Made paramount compared to being understood.
Passion in this sense is a two way street;
Accessed through empathy;
Signaling kindness to let:
Selfish motives move
Inadvertently away to clear honesty’s lane.
Only compassion safeguards humanity; something so
Natural for those who have it, sadly can never be nurtured.
Trials of loss and death will test your driving skills.
Right or wrong may rain pain in a haze.
And the world may seem darker but only compassion can
Fortify your inner light and make it shine bright.
For compassion is God’s light in one’s heart to fight hate.
I, me, and myself are good to keep you going but never
Consistent as a human, because compassion is light in darkness.
Inspired by: "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
