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.

    We are not the same,
    Not in creed, in colour or name.

    We should value each other's worth.

    Be kind and caring in all that you do
    Because no one knows what another goes through.

    If you can't be kind, sit down and pray.

    From sad weary eyes, silent tears they weep.
