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
