Be Kind (2014)

Be kind for

everyone’s fighting their
own battle,

north of
shit creek with catharsis
for paddles, holes in the
boat rendering

buoyancy more
fragile than
ever.

Threads of cotton
compressed by
our shackles
unravel,

incompatible with
water and its
unfortunate
rot.

Be kind, for
as much as
I’m your
afterthought,
apostate,
a ghost of status quos;

I don’t need another
demon where they
already exist
in droves.

    Loved this line.
    I am not a very kind person tho as when you help someone the next thing u see is them asking fore more as if it is their right to demand it.
    Just today after were returning from dinner a kid came by asking us to buy his bolloons …we bought half of em (there were a lot of em mind you) …
    Then the little brat asked for money and even the food I was carrying.
    I immediately left after that.
    TBH mom planned to give him food before he even asked but didn’t want to a anymore when he started demanding it . Even I didn’t like it as I already saw the rest of the kids eying us…waiting for us to give that kid food so that they couldalso run too us demanding the same.
    Thats just how it is…there are vultures waiting to scavenge what little kindness is left in us.
