Kindness, A user’s guide (poem)

12 Mar

Let kindness guide you

Kindness, a user’s guide

Within us all, kindness can be found,
Take a piece and add it to your day.
It’s with you, wherever you are bound,
Let kindness guide you along your way.

But how can you find it when you’re lost?
Is it there amid uncertainty?
Know this, that kindness comes at no cost,
It’s found all around, because it’s free.

Even within emptiness, it lives,
Even in confusion, it will grow,
Even in times of hardship, it gives,
The light of kindness, always on show.

Kindness can appear within a smile,
At a moment when someone’s in need.
That tells them their struggle is worthwhile,
And that one day soon, they will succeed.

Kindness can be a hand reaching out,
Or a gesture that says it’s okay.
Kindness can restore hope lost in doubt,
And can help others to find their way.

Kindness can come with a gentle voice,
Giving encouragement to be strong.
Saying that there is a better choice,
To not give up, to just carry on.

Kindness is a gift for you to share,
That once given, may then fade from view.
And yet, kindness never leaves you there,
For kindness always returns to you.
