Tonight I was on a twitter chat with friends at #KSRA, Keystone Reading Association. One of the participants said that the world needs more poems on kindness. I AGREE! I have one to share (see below). I hope we can all start the new school year with kindness in our hearts.
I wrote the following poem after a man said to me, “there is no such thing as kindness anymore. If I am kind to you, then I’m just being a chump.” I was so startled, I didn’t know what to say. Even when I sat down to write a poem in response, I still could answer him in only question.
