when you want to know a person’s compassion
show him your scars, start with the smallest
ones and go to the deeper ones, see if he flinches
see if he ignores, smiles or gets irked..
you will get your answer, your insight, your vision
in his soul and heart, you wont need further test.
You want to see if he will walk with you for
the longest time? Through the ups and downs?
Pause for a while when you are walking
note if he feels that you are no longer there,
stops and searches for you, calls out your name
or doesnot even notices, fumes, or just walks ahead.
Small signs tell us the story but don’t hurry
take your time and test for long enough
let your heart do the judging not your mind
a thing done once is not always a nature
if we pull out a pot too quickly from the fire
it will crumble to pieces even though it had the matter.
Love, friendship, relations take their due time to season
so before clinging to one or throwing one away
take all the measures, take all the cautions
because a heart once pushed away is hard to be held back
a hand once disengaged is too tough to be pulled back
take your time to love and take your time to walk away.
