'Be Kind and Grow'

Kindness does not cost a single penny, but with kind deeds you can touch so many; sometimes all that's needed is to say hello, and that will make a sad persons soul glow. Perhaps a gesture offered to the poor, to old people, the young, the sick and more; the more kindness you give your soul will grow, and your inner beauty will overflow. Be the kind soothing words that someone needs, hold a sad hand while their weeping sorrow bleeds; do some simple thing to change their day, do something that will make them find their way. Be their sunshine and give them hope; maybe one day you will be the one unable to cope. ____________________________ June 14, 2020 (Re-post) Poetry/Couplet/'Be Kind and Grow Copyright Protected, ID 02-1260-389-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Submitted to the Standard contest, Brian's Select H sponsor, Brian Strand Honorable Mention

So true, we all need kindness...a little kindness goes a long way, and it's as good for the one who gives it as the one who receives it. :)
