In a broken world, let us be kind.
Kindness has no barriers
Kindness has no barriers, there’s no surrounding wall,
You cannot lock it away behind an iron door.
Kindness has no prejudices, it is available to all,
You cannot hide it away beneath the kitchen floor.
Kindness is so gentle, as soft as a floating feather,
Landing gracefully upon a waiting outstretched hand.
Kindness is so strong, it can survive any weather,
With its strength you can help a fallen stranger to stand.
Let kindness be your guiding light whenever darkness falls,
For with it, you can let the light of love shine bold and bright.
Let kindness be your voice, letting others hear its calls,
For with it, you can guide them through the darkest night.
Kindness is the answer when there’s nothing else to be found,
Ready to be used in times when there is no other way.
Giving kindness to yourself, as well as to those around,
Will mend a broken life and help to bring a better day.
