Kindness, A user’s guide (poem)

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.

Courage within troubled times (poem)

Your courage is there

Courage within troubled times

Within the troubles of today, comes the sorrows of tomorrow,
When harmony has lost its way, and there’s no peace you can borrow.
When all around are shedding tears, and forgiveness cannot be found,
All you see is a world of fears, everywhere you look around.

Just look within and you will see, a place where your soul can retreat,
Where you can set your spirit free, to keep you standing on your feet.
Your inner courage can come out, your inner peace can bring you calm,
Your inner hope clear out your doubt, your inner self kept safe from harm.

The outer world’s fallen apart, so within yourself just hold tight,
Within yourself just hear your heart, and let it bring to you some light.
Let it show your courage the ways, you can make changes here and there,
To guide you through these troubled days, to let others know that you care.

Kindness has no barriers (poem)


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.

A carton of Kindness (poem)


Sharing out kindness

A Carton of Kindness

I have some cartons of kindness,
Please do come and get one today.
They are all made from helpfulness,
And filled with kind words to say.

They contain good deeds of all sorts,
Mixed together with a gentle touch.
There’s a sprinkling of kind thoughts,
Of those, you can never have too much!

There are plenty here for you to share,
With anyone else who’s around.
Just let them know that you are there,
And that with you, kindness can be found.

It’s price is just a piece of your heart,
With a bit of tenderness as well.
There’s enough here to fill any cart,
And it costs you nothing at all to resell.

So come and pick up a carton today,
Add it to your list of things to do!
Then share it as you go on your way,
And help to make this a kinder world too.

Love and Kindness hand in hand (poem)


Helping the world around us.

Love and Kindness hand in hand

Upon the road of life, love and kindness go strolling hand in hand,
And in our times of strife, they will work together to save our land.
Stretching out to us all, wrapping humanity within their embrace,
Peace and calm come to call, when love and kindness enter the place.

Kindness seeks out our fears, beside it love carries a guiding light,
They will help dry our tears, helping us to get through our darkest night.
Kindness will endure the pain, for love gives it the strength to survive,
Together they will remain, keeping humanities hopes alive.

Faithful to us they stay, for in sad times they are our truest friends,
Helping us find our way, until the battle with hate and anger ends.
We can assist them too, by letting them guide us through this sorrow,
Helping others get through, let our love and kindness build tomorrow.

Let peace find a way (poem)


Being peace to those around you

Let peace find a way

Let peace find a way,
Throughout this new day,
Let love find a place in your life.
Let forgiveness win,
Share peace from within,
And let harmony replace strife.

Show others you care,
That you will be there,
When this day brings troubles to them.
Where discord if found,
Then turn it around,
And let peace shine bright, like a gem.

Sending a hug (poem)


A little comfort in your time of need

Sending a hug

I am sending a hug to you on this day,
A little comfort coming from me to you.
To let you know that you are not far away,
In my thoughts, for what you are going through.

No words can I say that will ease your sorrow,
Nor any help I can give to guide your way.
So a hug I send for now and tomorrow,
A little comfort to help you through each day.

Through troubled times I will walk beside you (poem)


I will help you to get through

Through troubled times I will walk beside you

Through troubled times I will walk beside you,
I will give a helping hand,
And if upon the road of life, you stumble,
Then I will help you to stand.

Through the trials and troubles we meet in life,
I will be there night and day,
And when upon life’s road, there is only strife,
Then I will seek a better way.

Through the struggles and hardships we must face,
I will bring hope to your door,
And then we can go searching to find a place,
Where harmony lives once more.

Through love and kindness, compassion and hope,
I will share my heart with you,
And so upon the road of life, we will cope,
As we find our way to the new.

Take a moment to smile (poem)


A smile can make such a difference to our lives.
(This is a double rhyme poem)

Take a moment to smile

Take a moment to smile, just here in this place,
And after a while, it will cheer up your face.
Now spread it around for anyone to see,
Let it be easily found by others, for free!

If your smile finds another, that it can reach out to,
Then you can help each other, on this day, to get through.
For a smile will bring hope, in those times of great sorrow,
Helping us to cope and find a better tomorrow.

Take a moment to smile, let it enter within,
When facing a sad trial, it will help you to win.
It will lighten your load, releasing your sadness,
Brightening up life’s road, with a touch of gladness.

For a smile can help all, both inside and out,
Gives us strength to stand tall, helps us to tackle our doubt.
If it is too hard to do, just go for a grin,
Then let it seep through you, and your smile will begin.

A Helping Hand (poem)


We could all do with a helping hand.

A Helping Hand

A helping hand can be given during times of great need,
A chance to help friends and strangers, by doing a good deed.
You may not know just what it is for them that you can do,
But they will know just what they need, to help to get them through.

A helping hand can fix and mend something that is broken,
Guided on what they need, from the words that they have spoken.
Maybe a shelf has slipped, or there’s a problem with their door!
Soon you give them a smile, which tells them all is well once more.

A helping hand can fetch and carry items for someone,
Moving things from room to room, or getting their shopping done.
Once the task’s completed and there is nothing more to do,
You can relax, have a drink and eat a biscuit (or two.)

A helping hand comes as a pair, twice as much you can give!
By their actions, your hands will help others to cope and live.
Stretch out your hand whenever you see something you can do,
Then in your times of need, others will do the same for you.
