power of kindness


tomorrow isn't promised today
so today take full advantage
of the life you have
and the people you share it with

never take life for granted
because if you do
it just might be
the last thing you'll do

make a new friend everyday
and show the people you love
that you really do
care and love them

never go a day
without telling someone
that you love them
even if it's just your parents

never leave someone
on a bad note
because it just might be
the last time you see them

even if you get
into a big fight with someone
tell them afterwords that
your sorry for what happened

you'll feel better
about yourself when you do
and you might even make
them feel better to

one kind word to someone
can make their day
or even stop them
from doing the unthinkable

you have the power
to change someones life
just say something nice to them
or even just a small gesture

the power is yours
and yours alone
so use it wisely
and you'll never go wrong

follow your heart
and nothing can stop you
from giving the ultimate power
the power of kindness.

Amongst the flowers I
