(15/01/2013) Cowardice and Compassion

compassion
 
My story is not long
It’s actually quite short
But it has its merits
Of this you can be sure
 
Kindness is my gift
And shyness is my curse
To have this contravention
For me there’s nothing worse
 
My heart will still beat strong
Resounding in my chest
If only I could show them
This virtues pure caress.
 
To show them my compassion
Would make me appear as weak
So I hide within my shell
Instead appearing meek.
