"If you want others to me happy, practice compassion.
If you want to be happy, practice compassion."
Dali Lama



Compassion (Acrostic)

C aring for others
O pen arms of love
M ending broken hearts
P raying to God above
A nswering the call
S aving another's life
S incerity of words
I nspiration through strife
O ffering hands to aid
N o judgements to be made
