Compassion

I recently posted this one Medium: Compassion

take notice of pain
it comes in all kinds of ways
soulful and sadful
spiritually obscure
physically in malaise

hold close the hurting
if not in arms try in hearts
you may not know what
kind of aching may be felt
trust that caring matters more

cries may not have tears
anguish manifests diverse
not for us to judge
just the same-judgment will come
and is often in telling

pull the chains from souls
release viral compassion
secrets can be held
truly, passions can be shared
without conditions all known
