Random Acts of Kindness

Today I smiled at a Woman I didn't even know,
Then walked a Senior across the street who resembled Castro,
I waved to a Child at the bus stop with the Minnie Mouse Bow,
Then told the Store Owner go move your car before it gets towed,
My  Neighbors are on vacation, but I decided to shovel their snow,
I even gave a hug to a Guy with a Sixties Afro,
I spoke words of hope to a Student who wants to turn Pro,
I took in a stray Cat and fed an abandoned Crow,
I support & bought a painting from a struggling Artist named Average Joe,
I got to thinking what if we help each other shine, then we can all glow,
We All can grow, kindness is the key we Individually & Collectively sow,
We must Unify as one, forming A Human Rainbow,
Plus we don't need a Suit or Cape to become a SuperHero

About this poem

I believe Empathy plus Sympathy equals kindness. Everyday I put my best foot forward and I pay it forward with kindness. The world can use more Kindmen from Mankind. Being Human not just Human Beings #TryKindness

    Sure sounds like someone with a big heart is spreading some love around. That's a person I'd chill with. I like your mind, Jhain. I'm prescribing more of you to the world.
