Is kindness lost in chaos?
Is our world so far askew?
Have our hearts shrunk, cold like steel?
Have our souls shut out the new?
Have families split too far apart?
Is forgiveness lost to time?
Have we grown to hate so much,
That we’ve completely lost our minds?
Are we looking over our shoulders?
Is violence now the norm?
Do we always think the worst first?
Would we steal to keep us warm?
Are we raising the next generation,
To distinguish right and wrong?
Are we handing them the gavel,
With intentions to do the world harm?
Where can we start in making a change?
Can it be as small as with me?
Could kindness spread like wildfire,
With a compassionate individuality?
