Poems about Compassion and Empathy
When we feel strong and well, it is easy to forget about our own frailties and also the misfortunes, troubles, and sicknesses of others. We are only as strong as is our compassion for those who are weak. For in strength must come the power of understanding and the wisdom to act with gentleness and kind concern for those who are not able to help themselves. It is in the ability to empathize that we show true insight and in the ability to aid that we show our real gifts. These are the real hallmarks of true compassion and strength.

Some of us are serious,
some thrive on comedy.Featured Shared Story

Poem About The Power Of A Hug
It's the touch that gives you comfort.
It's the touch that makes you feel.
It's something that no one else can ever steal.
It's the sweetest human contact for the body and the mind.Featured Shared Story
Here's a virtual hug from me! It will get better, hang in there!
Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
