Child, enlighten me,
Have you smelled the aroma of Empathy,
such that cleanses and sweetens the air?
Oh! The fragrance is a perfect balance
of abnegation and disdain!
It still baffles me that
your kind can become so filthy.
feeling the latter is the dominant incense,
or that there is even a dominance!
What is that foul odor you radiate?
Not the fresh dew of your travels,
nor abnegation, nor disdain.
It’s subtle, laced with compassion.
A potpourri of love!
