A Kindness

To the damaged and oppressed
It lays its gentle hand, its gentle
breath, and asks for nothing.

To the wronged and dispossessed
It understands with a kindly hand
And be’s there without a sound.

To the despised and those dismissed
It offers its warm hand to temper
Loneliness, washing the mind clean

And bringing all to the light of wholeness.

  1. Ahhh, lovely!

    <smile> I’d read ahead, barely glancing at the title, losing it from consciousness. So, at the end, I was left wondering:

    It? What is it?

    Until I scrolled up, revealing A Kindness

    Ah, of course!
