Accused Of Being Selfish - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

What has been taken from another,
Is insignificant for the other not suffering.
But that day comes and attention is expected.
Empathy desired is wished and wanted,
To receive and accept.

When one doesn't get it,
Everyone is accused of being selfish.
Even the ones neglected and left affected,
To endure their suffering to heal successfully alone.
