Among All Of Mankind

there's a well inside of me
that longs for more empathy.

it starts with the creatures
man mistreats.  this negative action is ceased
with the growth of the heart --
something man must fine tune like
a work of art.

we should watch out for the little ones
who mistreat their pets.
these could lead to serial killers
as studies have shown.  if they like
animals, encourage them to be vets.

there's a well inside of me
that longs for more empathy.

we should watch our attitudes
towards all the divine creation.
even buddists have respect for all life --
including insects --
by not bringing them death.

"no-kill" shelters can
be the best for unwanted pets.
maybe these small actions
can lead to the end of wars,
racism, sexism, classism and violence.
plant the good grains of kindness.

there's a well inside of me
that longs for more empathy
to spread like wild flowers
in the summer among all of mankind.
