Practice Compassion

Veronica Paver, 18

Compassion in the way we talk
Compassion everywhere we walk
Reaching out a helping hand
Supporting those who cannot stand
Putting ourselves in others’ shoes
And seeing others’ point of view
Showing an abundance of sympathy
Aware we don’t know their history
Compassion in a simple hug
Compassion is a form of love
