Be Kind

In joy, you may seek blissful solitude 

but trials may require friendly banter
Be kind… 
Prosperity has many companions 
adversity may not extend you that favor
Be kind 
Love in its youthful radiance will indulge you 
But old age may test your resolve
Be kind
Vanity will have its listeners sometimes 
but poverty may force you to plead alone
Be kind
In words and simple deeds, in the other’s needs
To the magnificent trees, to little seeds 
To the mighty storm and the humble breeze
Be kind! You’ll need them all someday! Be kind!
