We Must Feed Our Compassion - Poem by Amanda Shelton

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
