On Our Life's Journey

On our life's journey many acquaintances we come for to know
And a few of them into good friendships do grow
But a friendship gone sour can to you be a source of woe
When one you did love choose to become your foe
In every good person compassion you'll find
It lives and it grows in the halls of the mind
To those people who are blessed with empathy
To be kind to others seems to come naturally
The flaws I see in others in my own self I see
At least that is how it does appear to be
And we all look at life one might say differently
What seems marvellous to you may not seem so to me
On our journey through life many a treacherous bend
A journey for all of us that does have an end.
