Be Kind


The richest lady I met

With not much, she gave

How could her wealth be meagre

When her heart was an ocean


Many poor people did I meet

With a lot, they did not give

How could their wealth be plenty

When their wants were an ocean


Many I passed did not see

The hunger in my belly

How could they understand

They had never seen real need


Many I passed did see

The hunger in my belly

They had nothing to give

So they gave a kind word and a smile


I remind myself today

No matter what I have or not

I won’t forget

That kindness is all you need


Oh man, seeking glory

Do not scorn the meek

For what use is your fame

If you cannot be kind


Oh man, seeking riches

Do not shun the poor

For what use is your affluence

If you cannot be kind


Oh man, seeking salvation

Do not spurn the vile

For what use is your peace?

If you cannot be kind
