Double-Edged

Compassion can be a beautiful thing:
Lead us to enlightenment, if that is what we seek
Letting our hearts and minds take wing
Like a child it does sneak, while lending us a much sought-after peek
Of the people we should be
Of the things that would be
If we would let them…

Compassion can be an ugly thing:
Let heartbreak of others in
Wondering what our help would bring
While we wallow in others’ sin
Reading too much in their eyes
While we realize
It’s ourselves who we despise
As we cut all ties
Finding ourselves in discomfort…
