Compassion

As frustration, fear and hurt course through my mind

dripping poisonous thoughts as an end, without means…

I sit quietly knowing an element of hypocrisy

 and judgement exist in these thoughts

and I listen to all of the things I hear on a daily basis

judgements made against people who are desparate

and posses neither access nor knowledge to use the tools necessary

I remember being one of those people

asking for help and receiving criticism

 and I try to reprogram my mind to the understanding

 that behind every issue is a measure of pain

and a cry for help

for which I may not be able to directly affect

but I can find the compassion 

to help myself

 and speak for those who cannot…
