Is there a nugget of wisdom

Greater than acts of kindness

Is there a deeper gratification

Than the one that stems from kindness



Malevolence and repugnance

Are enticements of devastation

Kindness and compassion

Are the foundations of pacific nation



Don’t look around for reasons

Don’t wait for perfect occasions

For we all toil each day

And your kind words can be vindication



Each act of your benevolence

Springs hope and strengthens the soul

Each act of your munificence

Brings us closer to our goal



Kindness costs us nothing

But is a virtue invaluable

So let’s all make the world wealthier

With an attitude extraordinaire!
