Lacking Compassion

Lack of compassion.
Yes, that’s what I feel.
What do you think you can honestly do about it?
You can’t.
I don’t care… because… I don’t want to.
It has nothing to do with your way of being.
It is simply my choice of living.
I don’t want to feel concern,
For one who’ll come to betray me.
I don’t wish to have interest
In one who will reject me.
Tragedy is a word for placing secrets
In one who holds not their tongue.
For they will announce your soul.
Remarks I find comforting
Are remarks that pain your heart.
For you will desert me,
Instead of deceiving me.
Lack of compassion – yeah that’s what I feel.
What do you think you can honestly do about it?

PS. I am so glad God taught me about compassion!
