“kind” is a word that
i’ve heard used to describe me
i don’t really mind

try hard to be kind
bring smiles to another
if not me, then who?

lot of mean out there
try to combat it with nice
mean is so ugly

now, 26 acts?
26 acts of kindness
for the newton kids

yeah, puts good out there
but there is an end to it
only 26

a challenge for you
no report needed because
that is not my point

do/say something nice
no particular reason
other than to do

expect nothing back
not a smile or thanks
but just to do it

that’s kindness, right there
not joining a mass kindness
project to feel good

make it a habit
daily act and part of you
benefits? endless

***I am not knocking the 26 Acts project or people who are participating. I’m saying we can do better as members of the world community.***
