Cause a destructive seed
Separate people nasty deed
Why is anyone better than you
Righteous glorify what they do

Folks have tools inner skills
Personal success developed wills
Rise pushing down someone
And where they come from

Not about the oppressed
Oppressor’s need to be best
Inferior misguided self
Needs bettering or else

Masking a missing piece
Hiding pain they can’t release
Why they oppress
Missing their happiness

Rather than raise their life
Deflect demonize being right
When feeling airs of another
Show compassion for the other

Undertake honor pure
Recognize emptiness be a cure
Extend forgiveness empathy a guide
Sad they live on false pride

See missing pieces in people who raise themselves by making others less?

How can you be more compassionate?
