Compassion Poem

We Need To Love One Another Openly And Honestly

I am a 51 year old single man raised in central New York, but I now call the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina home. The subject of this poem is something I feel very strongly about and hope to see change one day. As a society we are becoming more and more closed off from one another emotionally. If we don't learn how to truly love one another and show compassion for others I believe our society will continue to deteriorate into chaos and despair.

Heart Song

When a smile can lift a fallen soul
Or a loving touch make one whole
If just one heart we can console
Our Song of Love we can't withhold

So many people today are broken
Words of hope have ne'er been spoken
Their faith and love must be awoken
Our Song of Hope we must break open

How can we let the hurting suffer
While we stand by acting tougher
All we do is make things rougher
Our Song of Strength can be a buffer

A ray of light we might bring
To those who may have lost a wing
What a sound of joy will ring
When we let our Heart Song sing
