A to Z: K is for Kindness


Originally posted here, here it is again; K is for Kindness:

If you could just
show a smile, be kind
go up to a stranger
and do something special;
You could touch a soul
and be remembered.

You may be a stranger
but as sisters
in humanity, in faith
we know how to be together
to do things unbelievably touching.

(written Apr. 7, 11)

Broken may something be
yet all you have to do is fix it
or at least try
to show you love.

=) Women are pretty awesome--I mean by way of caring for one another. Or they can be. And they should be. There's no telling how far a little kindness can go.
