Be Kind

ungrand
a simpleness

a thing we teach to kids
yet in adulthood,
remissed

plain concepts
hard to execute,
when wrapped in selfish flesh

hero
the one who holds
this bold,
under pressures

refusing to let the world
rob
gestures

small
filled with explosive love

a tinny act
capable
of slamming shut hell’s door

Holly Father,
teach us all,
to pour out more

Kindness

A single act
word
or gesture.
The power to propel
guard
or gather.
Embodies compassion,
making it action.

A smile
or nod,
unexpected applaud.
Really seeing,
being
present.

Kindness
is mindful,
refuses to stifle
when it can’t understand.
Knows God’s hand
has the end
planned.
