Compassion strides across international borders

Compassion does not sit under just one flag

Compassion does not still on one side of the political divide

Compassion embraces all of the world’s religions

Compassion we strive to keep faith with

Compassion we struggle to keep pace with

In this time of global stress and strain

Let’s show our humanity by sharing some compassion

It’s time for talking together, not fight one another

As the threat of war become ever present by each passing day i felt the theme and words of this poem jump from my dreams on to the page. As the last line says:

"It's time to talk together, not fight one another"
