 Wanting and sharing empathy and sympathy

Empathy Blind

A few words, so mean and mindless
will always trump a thousand more of kindness
and I know, to my shame, that you’re hurt and I’m to blame.
Who am I to tell it as I please
and not to see, this is it to insult by degrees
and I know your pain, cause I see your tears fall like rain.

Who are you to verbally let fly
and not to see, how shocking it is to make her cry
and I know your kind, cause I too am empathy blind.

Why can’t we all understand
or at least to take them by the hand
words can never be un-told
so be sure to serve them warm, not cold.

Why can’t we all empathize
and if not, then we should sympathize
words can leave a legacy
serve them cold and you could rue the day.

A few words, so mean and mindless
will always trump a thousand more of kindness
and I know all this, Why!?, cause both a giver and receiver am I
and I know, to my shame, that you’re hurt and I’m to blame
