A Poem for You – For Now

It only took a few days
for her precious little act
of kindness
to leave the village bounds

it only took a few days more

to infect the local town

then it spread across the country
like a riot of wild flowers
and soon city walls were tumbling
as they lost their ancient powers

over lakes and seas and oceans
it spread from shore to shore
picking every lock on every heart
and opening every door

her kindness disarmed enemies
her kindness disarmed friends

her kindness knew no borders
her kindness knew no end

open up your hearts
she sang
open up your minds
for only human kindness
will prove we’re humankind

yes
only human kindness
will prove we’re humankind

Humankindness
