We Must Feed Our Compassion


Pushed to the side
We drive, we drive the wedge
between hate and fear
Don’t shed a tear

No one to trust
A life is worthy of much
Of greed
we must feed

Pushed to the edge
We drive, we drive the wedge
in between a life of greed
we must feed

This wound will bleed
it wont heal for me
infection sets in

Pushed to the end
to the end
A life of greed
we live in fear
we must feed
but a wound wont heal

A life of love
a life of passion
a life worthy of so much compassion

Pushed to the edge
to the end
to the side
don’t shed a tear
the greed sets in
but we must feed our compassion

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
