Compassion in life is a beautiful thing. But exactly what is compassion? I’ve always thought of compassion as love in action. After writing the poem COMPASSION, I searched Google to find a definition. The synonyms fit perfectly into my preconceived notion for the poem because they not only included love and mercy, each synonym requires action (stirring) on our part to metamorphose the ideaof compassion into the realty of compassion.

May compassion reign in our hearts and hands.

    1. You’re welcome, Bette. The world needs more compassion, more love, more understanding, and more “speaking the truth in love,” not in judgment and condemnation, but rather witn a heart to helping the situation, or person. Keep writing.
