compassion - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Compassion is real love from the soul, for love is a quiet emotion, thus when loves passion materialises it comes in small gestures of gentle kindness.
The light of compassion shines the brightest in the darkness, showing the courage to hold on until daylight comes; and this is what our stars of love and emotional warmth achieve.
When our words fail us, when we see so much more than can ever be explained, that sense of love that hits us in a nanosecond... that's when our emotional intelligence leaps far beyond that which speech can ever accomplish. That's when we feel safe with another, love them for as "forever" as we are and will be. And it's that love that wakes us, shows us our best selves, opens such wide vistas of imagination and reality combined.
I will be the loudest "cry-baby" in the world. I will scream in the hopes that over time more people will choose compassion over indifference, that they will learn to walk a stoned path if it means saving another from far worse.
Let it all out
These are the things I can do without
I'm talking to you
Song "Shout," sung by Tears for Fears, Lyric by Ian Stanley, Roland Orzabal
Your compassion was the bridge, it just took time to trust my weight to it. You extended your hand and stayed while I showed you the scars, the mess, the fear. You let me come close, let me hide, let me return without shame. Every time I thought you'd had enough there was only patience I never felt I'd earned. I never wanted to be this way; I have pride. I need to be seen as strong, though I haven't been and am still so far from achieving. True healing takes time, there are no magic wands for deep pain. I'm going to try to be reliable, no promises, but you know me by now, my word means something.
In your compassion lies your true self, the part of your nature no part of life has stolen away. You have journeyed through this life, not on calm seas, but in storms that would have shattered many. It is something for you to be proud of, to hold onto, to help you to see yourself the way you really are. There is something about giving of yourself that makes your heart burn all the brighter and ignites your soul; that's not a common gift, my love - yet it is yours.
