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.

<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!
thanks Patrick. You are most kind!
