on empathy

The seconds in between your decision to love or to hate,

should consist of you looking at life from the other side.

Humans behaving without a care for humanity

isn't news, nor is it the best that this life brings.

I see life for what it might be,

so, when it roars with its ugly head,

I am confident. The light on the other end

will multiply the beauty of our experiences,

it will boost the value of what it means to fail,

enough to live, learn, and teach

to give, grow, and reach.

Give someone the chance

to do the right thing!

Patience, we know, is key,

in the moments you feel quick to judge,

practice empathy.
