Kindness - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

Kindness is an alien word today,
Eventually bound for extinction.

For angry words that people say
All carry tones of sheer vexation.

If words can swallow each man whole
Then we'll devour each other up,

For rage has taken each man's soul
One sentence then would be enough.

Perhaps it's time we change the tune
And lace our human words with grace

This higher form of life may soon
In time end up without a trace.

For there is only one distinction
That separates man from all the rest

Aside from Love's profound emotion,
Of virtues, Kindness is man's best.

'But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, perseverance, and long suffering....'
