Compassion Acts

Compassion Acts

Many minds grow cold and numb

to traumas, to conflicts and violence

when world views clash and take

form to shake a fragile World.

Bombs and bullets shake the World.

Weapons of light and sound shake the World.

Alarms and warnings go unheeded.

Some minds calculate, analyze, strategize

how to kill and kill and kill.

Some minds calculate, analyze, strategize

how to keep alive, alive and well,

the unresponsive Heart of Man

shocked again, again, again,

whether shocked for good or ill.

The Living know full well

that when Humanity has a will, a will

to live in peace, it finds a way.

God helps those who help themselves

and others. Compassion acts.
