#1000Speak for Compassion - An Acrostic Poem

I am taking part in the special blogging movement #1000 Speak for Compassion. 

In honour of this special movement, I am writing an Acrostic Poem using the word Compassion.

#1000 Speak for Compassion



Caring for other people is the right choice
Be an Ombudsman for those without a voice,
Mentor lost souls in need of a guide
Give them Praise and they’ll shine with pride,
Appreciate folks and let them know
Show emotion and let stuff go,
Show kindness every chance you get
Identify with people you’ve just met,
Outreach and help those in need
Nurture, inspire and take the lead

If you show compassion every day
Your life will be blessed in every way!

  1. I think you have summed up compassion so beautifully Cathy!

    And you know what it's true that we'll be happy and our lives worthwhile if we show compassion

    Random Thoughts Naba -Why No One Talks About Compassion Anymore?...
