Be kind
Every day,
And those who see
Will follow.

When you must tell hard truths,
Tell them kindly.

When you must do hard work,
Do it kindly.

When you are wrong,
Be kind.
When another is wrong,
Be kind.

When the enemy is the one who cuts in line,
Be kind.
When the enemy is the one who betrays your trust,
Be kind.

When you are angry,
Be kind.
When you are sad,
Be kind.

And when you are weary;
When your heart feels closed
And your hands feel clenched
And your eyes glued shut
And your lungs burnt up –
When love is nowhere you can see,
Walk away.

If you should turn back,
Be kind.
