Stop and think of all the atrocities you know of.
How awful, that we see the scenes of war in our living rooms,
and remain vaguely detached.
How awful, that we see death and brutality, more publicised than ever,
but cannot bring ourselves to climb out of our minds and care about it.
Perhaps no heart is big enough to carry the sadness of the human race.
But compassion is our saving grace, and I will try, I swear I will try,
to care about every single person who crosses my path.
