Be Kind

If you can't give, If you can't receive
If you can't share, If you can't care
Just be kind,
for kindness is the forte of mankind

When vagrant beggars approach you,
solicit your things and money,
even if you don't have any,
Just say it compassionately,
For that's the symbol of heart pure.

When folks nearby, laboring in dirty mess,
even if you can't bare the smell,
don't ever plug your face and nose.
You gain/loss none in that short time,
but they get hurt, for their job is pristine

When you discern your servant maid
having her meal, sitting on the floor,
don't even wait for a second, grab a chair,
accord her a seat, for it's her right,
and we have no right to govern theirs

Every soul in the world is different;
Not everyone gets the same road;
Everyone has their own problems;
so even if you cannot confer solutions,
just be kind...

The world we share is the same;
The water we drink is the same;
The air we inhale is the same;
The sky above is the same;
So don't count the money and fame.

Just be kind,
for kindness is the forte of mankind

oh supraja, congratulations to you on number 200. And you are such a kind person, it's no surprise your poem would be on kindness. 200 words in the poem? Amazing. I recall when I reached my 100th sonnet. This was many years ago, and i was so bursting with pride, I wrote a poem on my 100th sonnet! (not ever posted at Soup)
