a touch of kindness

This post originally appeared in November 2007.  I’m always struck by the power of kindness – I think it is one of the most attractive qualities in the world.



when potential seems broken into pieces
and dreams are cradled injured in our hands


when we are engulfed by our own limitations
and the world’s insanity


a touch of kindness
breaking through to surprise us

bringing warmth where we thought
no warmth could reach

a touch of kindness

never weak
always gentle

can shatter to pieces the walls we build so determinedly

never weak
always gentle

and worth every last breath of gratitude we have left.

One thought on “a touch of kindness
