I Am…


I am compassionate.

I wonder how others can inflict pain purposely.handsworld

I hear the cries of those in need.

I see the suffering and…

I want to help.

I am compassionate.


I pretend I am in their shoes and…

I feel their pain.

I need to do something, for…

I fear no one else will.

I cry when they cry.

I am compassionate.


I understand that there will always be bad in the world, but…

I believe we can lessen it.

I dream that some day, people will get along.

I try to make that a reality.

I hope to at least make a small step forward each day.

I am compassionate.
