Poem Friday – Kindness


kindness
By Lesley Voth

It is always a good feeling to be kind
Wonderful for the soul, great for the mind

Kindess is not always to be found
Some are hurtful, nasty and not nice to be around

We should always aspire to attend the need of others
As we would for our family, sisters and brothers

Be genuine in all that we say
Hopefully make for someone a special day

To give and expect nothing in return
From someone elses kindness we can learn

To be compassionate and sensitive to all living things
Great rewards to our soul will this kindness bring

To display kindness with energy and passion
I hope kindness never becomes old fashion

Inspire, encourage and motivate who ever it may be
You know sometimes that kindness needs to be given to me, by me

Be patient and tolerate those who are disagreeable
We have not way of knowing their trouble, their future not forseeable

So be kind to yourself and those around you
May life for all be happy and smooth, not a dull day only sky blue

    Please may I use the photo of the duck and the kitten for a work book I am developing to use in Bangladesh?
