Poem: Imagine a World Where Everyone is Kind.




Imagine a World Where Everyone is Kind

All of my life it's been easy to find
a zillion reasons and ways to be kind.
Opening doors, smiling at strangers,
But sometimes this kindness lands me in danger…

A target for bullies, for spite, for fear;
it started with kindness and ended in tears.
My tears.
My shame.
Wincing as they
called
my
name.

Why can't the world be a kinder place?
Without the horror, pain and disgrace
of bullies and spite,
then maybe,
just maybe...
we might,
live in a happier world with laughter and joy,
without those minds who seek to destroy.

It's not hard being nice, thoughtful and true,
So I beg each and every one of you…
love each moment,
smile, hug and kiss,
and please don't dismiss
the importance of kindness.

Because I for one,
can't stop my heart, my hope or my mind,
from imagining a world where everyone is kind.
