(959) Be Kind - Poem by Melvina Germain

Disagreements will come,
disagreements will go
being right
seems important so
if I may,
I would like
to shed a little light,
being kind
more important than
being right.

    Kindness, that which can save a life or lack of cause the loss of.....This is lovely, succint and so well put....Kindness can make people have to leave ones they love and places and give up lots, when it's taken from them and instead, go and regain their dignity back...This should be plastered all over this site, well for a few at least... A friend so true, oh how nice it would be if it were so and not just a bunch of words. You couldn't have picked another topic more needed nor written it as well as you have...thank you Melvina, love, marci.xo (Report)Reply
