A poem on kindness

Hi friends,

How are you all doing? I am doing good.  I am enjoying the beginning of this new year with some renewed goals on reading and learning.

I enjoy reading, because, whatever I read brings a change in me.  I grow a bit more as a person.

Words, I feel have some special magic in them.  They help us communicate with others as well as with our own selves. I feel very good when I read or hear certain words like love, heart, roses, magic, faith, goodness, kindness, gratitude, joy, happiness etc… You know how I love making a list of positive words just to change my mood.

So, when I see such words, they catch my attention and make me want to share them with you all.  I want you all to experience such words and the feelings associated with them on a daily basis so that they seem to be the most natural thing to you and eventually you start believing in them.


Yesterday, while going through Instagram I came across a wonderful poem by Alison Malee (her Instagram handle: @alison.malee ) from her book “the day is ready for you”.

The poem goes like this:

ah, kindness.
what a simple way
to tell another
struggling soul
that there is love
to be found
in the world.

What do you think? Isn’t “being kind” a powerful way of confirming to all the people struggling, that there is still love and humanity left in this world. Believe me when I say that our kindness is what such people need to be able to live on. They get a hope that things will eventually get better and that the world is with them.  This hope is enough to help them bounce back into a life full of happiness and success.

The kindness of people around is sufficient to help a person rise and shine once again.

Do let me know what you think.

    I love the poem! 🙂 Thank you for sharing it. Your idea that words are powerful has been backed by science. Dr. Masaru Emoto crystallized water molecules after exposing them to words. The uplifting words created beautiful shapes, while the downshifting words created unpleasant shapes. Up to 60% of the adult human body is water, so when we speak kind, loving words to ourselves, it makes sense that our bodies would react positively. 🙂
