Sympathy: Master, what does the future hold?

A heartlessness, once upon a time you never were!
A callousness, you have not been!
A benevolence, you are!
A tolerance, you will ceaselessly be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word sympathy
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for empathy

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Pi (π)
Can I pass a verse, committed so pupils might see
Newly didactic notations, largely nurturing, and oh yes evermore free?
Liking or pathos feel all too manifest. But is bearing?
Affection, mercy? - or kindness, clemency? Darn! I neglected Fearing!
I wonder agreement and therefore encourage, but happily ought I
- given meanings so - innuendos written with equations spry?
