Compassion become a curse

Open hearts become trampled on

Meaningful gestures get misinterpreted

Pitying become so despised

Acts of kindness become easily forgotten

Selflessness become such a rarity

Sheltering a lost soul become dangerous

Inner reflection become a joke

Open spirits slam shut like books

Natural empathy become lost to us?
