With Mental Health Awareness Week taking place from 18th to 24th May, with the theme of kindness, the following poem is apt.
It doesn’t matter where you go,
Or who you meet along the way,
Carry kindness in your heart,
And practice it each day.
A simple smile can change the course,
Of someone’s else’s week,
The smallest gesture represents,
The gift of joy we seek.
A gentle touch reminds us,
That humanity still reigns.
To pet a lonely cat or dog
Shows that love will never wane.
There are a million obstacles
On any given day,
But rise above the hate and fear
And live life the kindness way.
