Be Kind…A Poem.



What does it mean to be kind,

Do you know it in your mind?

Is it something said or seen,

Tell me now, what does it mean?

To help someone on this day,

Is surely kind, I do say.

To be asked, please do not wait,

Go help out, before too late.

Lift up someone you see fall,

Speak nice words, but that’s not all.

Give your time and stop to chat,

It’s not too hard to do that.

Mostly we do like to say,

Kindness doesn’t come my way,

Why should I be kind at all?

Hey! Let kindness grow, not stall.

Whatever comes, please be kind,

Let other things go behind.

With a smile be kind today,

And spread some kindness every day!

      • I’m finally back. Why does everything happen at the same time when I’m trying to make my supper and eat and everything happens like people coming to the door and phone ringing and my food getting cold and phone ringing and Muffin drinking my root beer and food getting cold and, and AAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!😲😳😲😳😲😳 All in all it was a good supper though.πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ™„

      • That’s a good question, I like good questions. I don’t always have good answers, but I like good questions. Hmm, I really like that Nice warm place I was at in June, think I would pick that one. Or maybe Hawaaaaiiii.


      • Along the French Riviera nearly everyone speaks English. Yeah, Hawaii is a nice choice though. Might get claustrophobia though.

      • Well, the way I see it, it’s like this, now if you look at it this way then it’s like that, but now if you look at that way it’s like this, so then what I see is that when you look at something that way it will always be like this so if you don’t look at things that way then it really won’t be until you do. What do you think of that?

  1. Kindness is contagious. Even if someone doesn’t return the favor, your act of kindness is stronger.
    And somehow it always return. A simple act of kindness can change someone’s mood.

  2. Enjoyed the poem ! If only you had your camera out, then you would have gotten a good pic of Muffin drinking your root beer…
