COMPASSION

Humanity's ego, to resort to violence
To settle conflicts makes no sense,
And yet we still have not learned
The art of peace, for which we yearned.

To love our neighbour as ourself
And to put grievance on the shelf
Could this be in our gracious hands?
To bring compassion to troubled lands.

With each hill we have to climb
Life is lived one day at a time.
Let the tears of yesterdays storm
Bring a smile to a new day born.

For everything to be humane
We need to be compassionate and sane
Too lightly on lifes scales
Compassion weighs and prevails.
