Reciprocal Altruism

You’ll find that there’s a simple rule
In life that goes like this
The more you contribute; put in
The more you will not miss

For by some mutuality
If you try to be kind
The same will greet you in your walk
Sweet kindness you’ll then find

And people will be kinder and
More generous, lovely
Because they feel that you have taken
More time with them you see

So show a little interest in
Their lives, their ways, their means
For returns of added kindness
Like boosters or vaccines

Yes!  Counter any ill ways with
Kind-heartedness withstood
Reciprocal altruism
All for the greater good

Reciprocal Altruism


What is Compassion?

The hand of comfort touching hearts
With concern and care
On the wing of understanding
Rejecting judgement and despair
Without assumption or bias
Universal altruism pure
Embracing selflessness in union
With love and mercy whole, secure
Innate within the senses
Giving succour and sympathy
Nurturing connections
Surpassing empathy
Paving life paths of fulfilment
Of health and kindness warm
Compassion is happiness
In its highest form.
