Today, just for now, do a kind thing
Something you haven't done lately.
Visit a sick neighbor or friend.
Do something out of your way.
Today, just for once try something new.
Try not telling, try listening to another.
Listen and care about the things they say.
Not to bring you praise but to help another.
Today, just for you, be kind to the homeless.
Be kind to the friendless.
Remember how proud your parent would be,
Remember how things go around and back to you.
Today try harder to not say an unkind thing.
Today try not to say a word you should not say.
Today will soon be tomorrow.
Today will be the rest of your life, and it will be kinder.
