Some thoughts (and haikus) on kindness…

I’ve been thinking a lot about kindness and empathy recently.  About how we could use a lot more of it in the world.  About how we need a lot more of it in the world.  I wrote these three haikus a while ago, but I found them fitting and wanted to share them today…

 

Imagine teaching
Kindness instead of fear; what
A world that could be.

 

What is compassion?
A helping hand to those who
Cannot stand alone.

 

A cruel word born in
Anger, bitten back, cannot
Poison anything.
