“Kindness is free. Compassion costs nothing.”

“Give and receive…”

Indeed,

that’s the way it should be,

but, sadly,

reality bites and I disagree.

… Whilst I understand the sentiment

and I’d like to believe

(the world a better place),

experience, oh so bitter,

tells me otherwise.

People, give them an inch,

will suck you dry.
