This poem, 'Kindness' follows the 'theme' of my book 'Choice for Teenagers', encouraging positive values in life through poetry. Many of the poems are metaphorical 'stories'.The book is now available as paperback
and ebook.


Kindness

 

Is it really too hard to smile?

Or walk that fraction of a mile?

To bend down – maybe - once again

Pick up something for one in pain?

 

To offer your seat when all have gone?

Make someone laugh who has no fun?

To help to carry too heavy a load

Of one who is limping down the road?

 

Some people seem to be unaware

That in their lives other people share

An act of kindness passes by

They don't notice and they don't try

 

They behave as if they are blind

To others’ needs and do not mind

But they lose out, make no mistake

These do not give, they only take

 

But they will never have the feeling

Of inner peace - that is so healing

An inner knowledge of doing well

Which others have no need to tell

 

Why not find out which one you are?

Actions speak louder than words - by far

‘Survival’ is built into every mind

But, it’s also true , all could be kind
