The Sympathizer

The Sympathizer

He is gifted in that he feels so well

Nobody denies that he’s a guy, swell


But the heart over head cripples him

So chances of success always look dim


He wastes energy in reaching out to all

He continues this despite fall after fall


If only, he had some limits laid down

This trying to rescue all that drown


But there is hope that he introspects

If told so by someone he respects


A good quality, irritatingly, taken too far

Is hampering progress of this rising star


Love own goals over premature charity

End the disregard of people of parity


Sympathy and empathy in moderation

Helps fulfill duties and reach the station



Spread the love
