Kindness Lives

Kindness Lives

by Carmen H Gray

 

Kindness lives in the space

Where you feel the lowest

Yet the stranger beside you

Is crying in pain

And you give them the last

Measure of yourself

Thinking you helped them

But they end up

Comforting you

Kindness lives in the space

Where life is messy

And unclear

And confusing

Yet true friends and love

Hold you

When you cannot hold yourself

Kindness lives in the space

Where you can see

The hurt that others do not

Because you have

Swam in the same suffering

And instead of offering advice

You simply (profoundly) offer your heart
