Indifference

Tis indifference that shameth the soul

for it casteth a burgeoning shadow of sorrow.

Shouldest not compassion stir the soul to move 

for such is the sacred sanction and the golden rule;

to love one another and seek thy brothers higher good.

 Answereth me now hath empathy averted her eye

insensible to the stings of conscience and the hearts enbittered cry?

Can'st thou with deliberate distain thy neighbors forsake

when to thee his empassioned petition make?

Nay, for this I can avow, the heart raiseth a nobler thought

that the brotherhood of mankind will triumph when forgiveness

and love are sought

    Hi Lori: Indifference has many meanings but your use of the Old English exemplifies it's true nature. Great Write!

    I agree with your good old fashioned sturdy advise, somethings never go out of style, for a example an empathetic heart, and a caring soul, something I believe you must contain to write about it with such conviction, sending my loving hugs your way Lori xxx
