empathy

here i sit alone

shedding tears for others who cannot cry anymire

yet how am I supposedly cold, cruel and heartless

when my heart rips in two at the idea of death pain or sorrow

if anything doesn't that make me a strong compassionate person

you're wrong about me i care about every life on this earth

i will cry tonight for those hurting

call me a bad person again

if kindness, empathy and compassion are bad what does that make you, oh callous one?

you're afraid of how bright kindness is

let it consume you and change you

regain your humanity lost

I haven't lost my humanity-what about you?

tonight i will cry for those in pain i hear them wailing

i will wail with them

because i am human

and humans are supposed to be linked to others.
