On Compassion As A Moral Code

The intellect and sensitivity,
Natural guides for existential being.
Feelings are for ethical behavior,
The eyes are for the seeing.

Pain is bad,
Comfort is good.
Sensitivity is a guide,
To function as we should.

Why seek pain,
When comfort will do?
I have an aversion to suffering,
I can only assume the same for you.

The intellect and sensitivity,
Natural guides for existential being.
Compassion as a moral code,
The eyes are for the seeing.

  1. Do you have/have you read The Good Book? I feel as though you would love it. I believe it would speak to your deep poetic mind.

    • Hey Charlie,

      I had never even heard of it till just now. Opened another window and did a quick search. I take it you refer to the title by a person named Grayling. The title peaks my interest, and your recommend seals the deal. I shall acquire, read, and share my thoughts.

      Thanks for the recommend my friend!!

      Dave
