A trait I value over any.
It shines from heart through eyes.
It manifests in deeds of love.
Kindness is a soft safety net
catching us in an unpredictable world.
It lives inside of us always.
I believe it's our true nature.
Our fears and insecurities mask it
from time to time in defensiveness.
Our hearts are soft, we protect.
Our hearts and others deserve cradling.
It's a sincere inquiry of well being,
a lunch dropped to the homeless,
it's holding someone's heartbreak with compassion,
a loving touch on the shoulder,
a wave of love through eyes,
a genuine prayer for other's struggles,
a simple benefit of the doubt,
openness to another point of view,
looking for the best in others,
seeing all humans as equals, regardless
of education, jobs, religion, status, style.
It's holding all in one's heart
with a sincere desire to help:
the victim, the perpetrator, the whole.
EVERYONE deserves kindness, love, compassion.
These things change us for better.
