Human Kindness - Poem by Ajit Das
Thick December fog wrapping around,
she had left the office after night shift.
Suddenly she found her bank card missing
and no money to hire a taxi or board a bus.
A man approached her from the roadside.
Coming to know her plight in shivering cold,
he offered her his last few coins to get home.
He himself had no place where he could go.
She declined the offer, but was touched
by his kind gesture warming her heart.
A sense of gratitude prompted her to repay
the homeless man by securing him a home.
She organised a campaign, herself stayed
on the streets, raising funds to buy a roof.
Their reciprocal reaction scripted a message
of human kindness - still a binding force
in a world seemingly concerned only with self.
