POETICS: Being Kind

Here is a little poem I wrote a while back. It’s not very good – but I will keep on trying!


 I have a dream.

An empathetic  world.

A fair and just society.

A humane society.

For the generations to come.

Making a kinder world.

Let us join hands and be practical:

Being Kind is the thing.

Everyday a little more empathy,

getting under the skin-

That always helps a lot.

A touch of sympathy and caring will

move us along nicely.

And compassion: well that is the goal.

But there is more to be done.

Attend to the rights and the justice for others,

While cultivating the flourishing for all.

The democratization of everyday life.

A cosmopolitan hope.

I have a dream.
