"Compassion" by Teddy F.

Of all the virtues there is none greater than that of compassion,

For it is the final expression of one’s own striving,

The true fruit of personal labor,

And that which shows that Buddha’s path is never futile.

As a small stream lets run the water of a mountain that has been

For years purifying its contents,

So does compassion give expression and purpose to this

Clarity that by Buddha’s path is gained.
