Fair to middlin'
Think of all the places we imprint each day.
Mindless details we display,
like empty spaces on our shelves
where we got things for ourselves.
Make the bed when we get up?
Leave a dirty coffee cup?
How much passes through our hands
like the hourglass’ moving sands.
Like a ship we leave a wake,
no matter if we give or take.
We make a difference wherever we go.
It doesn’t always seem like it though.
If we’re not here, it wouldn’t be the same,
They’d have to find someone else to blame.
Someone who can’t be the special thing we are.
Out of billions, we are our own unique star.
There is much we have in common, I must say,
one is we can show kindness along our way.
Kindness is an effort we must make,
it is a matter of both give and take.
Kindness can change the world we live in.
On one act at a time lives are dependin’.
So remember what importance your kindness holds
even when we don’t know how the act unfolds.
