Broken Line

Discrimination and hatred
based on trivial differences,
the absurdity,
the tragedy,
of our time.
There’s no hope for human kind
when little minds are first in line.
Let’s break the cycle.
Let’s stand shoulder-to-shoulder.
Let’s. Be. Compassion Warriors.

    • An interesting parallel. Though I like the phrase, “compassionate warrior,” I can’t take credit for it. I first encountered it in a book by Pema Chödrön. Besides the positive connotations, I like that it turns the passive perception of compassion on its head.
