Where has the compasssion gone
for our fellow man?
Scurrying around in our busy days
forgetting who we are
on this small planet we call home
living day to day -
have we lost the ability to care or sympathize
all empathy gone away?
A simple gesture or one kind word
a thank your or a please,
to look a stranger in the eye
instead of at your feet.
To live in the world and not just on it,
to embrace each day with gladness,
and not dread the path you tread
or the stranger you may meet.
To make this life a lot more pleasant
try passing on a smile.
Tolerance and understanding
are what makes life worthwhile.
