Compassion (Acrostic) - Poem by chandra thiagarajan

C-ompassion is showing sympathy
O-n this special day we emphasize empathy
M-eaning of compassion is co-suffering
P-ity and concern for others genuinely exhibiting.
A-ltruism is amply manifested
S-heltering and embracing the distressed
S-elflessly serving the ones under privileged.
I-n numerous philosophies it is a great virtue
O-pen- hearted jumping in, others too rescue
N-atural and an innate longing for helping others!

Poet's Notes about The Poem


*Today (28-6-13) is World Compassion Day!
