what happens to others should be no concern to you

although others are concerned about you

what tricky exchanges

of mind and heart

it is to love but not interfere with what

a loved one must do

and to suffer out of compassion

because you yourself know what they're up against

true there is nothing we can do for anyone else

also true that compassion will compel us

to what what we can

the responsibility of each of us is to ourselves

but that includes being of service to others in time of need

what tricky exchanges to love and to suffer
