Understanding creates empathy (poem) by Cassie Kinney

The most admirable thing you can do is be understanding,
Or rather to understand all facets of life.
Understand society, the people, the mind, the self.
Understand what it is to be alive.
Understand the Earth, the planets, the Universe.
Once we realize we all have the same needs;
And once we recognize our insignificance compared to the world at large,
We can free ourselves from our primal ego that works for violence.
When we understand one another,
We do not fear, thus we do not fight.
