Kindness is a River

Kindness is a River that quenches the land

Kindness is a River that extends a hand

Kindness is a River that flows across clay

Kindness is a River that will find its own way

Kindness is a River that gathers speed

Kindness is a River that everyone needs

Kindness is a River that nourishes the soul

Kindness is a River that never grows old

Kindness is a River that is pro LGBTQ+

Kindness is a River that costs nothing for You

Kindness is a River that blends without seams

Kindness is a River that offers new dreams

Kindness is a River that offers hope for new life

Kindness is a River that soothes Bush fire strife

Kindness is a River that flows without pay

Kindness is a River that should flow easily each day

Kindness is a River taken for granted

Kindness is a River that’s rarely cold shouldered

Kindness is a River that meanders through rough terrain

Kindness is a River that changes the game

Kindness is a River that does not know your name

Kindness is a River that reaches through distance

Kindness is a River with a life long existence

Kindness is a River that etches deep spaces

Kindness is a River devoid of “airs and graces”

Kindness is a River that is an ellipsis of giving

Kindness is a River that never impacts salary income

Kindness is a River that’s entwined through tears

Kindness is a River that repeats ripple refrains

Kindness is a River that wants unstructured reach

Kindness is a River that breaches class breach

Kindness is a River that won’t discriminate the masses

Kindness is a River that ebbs and flows

Kindness is a River you’ll miss when it’s goes

Kindness is a River that continues it’s course

Kindness is a River that hydrates “the lost”

Kindness is a River for some too high a cost

Kindness is a River discharging its strength

Kindness is a River of indeterminate length

Kindness is a River that ebbs and flows,
walking it’s banks,
paddlers arrive and then go

Kindness is a River that flows through the home,
some houses are flooded whilst many are barren with stone

Kindness is a River that shows on your face
The surface, animated ripples, that linger, a reprieve

Passengers that travel its length to receive
Tourists that visit
Always take, never give
Quenching their needs
Then desert
Until their next crash
Never repaying their deficit stash

Those that embrace this elixir of life
They journey alone
Feeling other’s pain twice
First from the splash of drowning alone
Second reading “Be kind” memes from reverse hose pipes that suck supplies dry.

The River of Kindness will forever flow
It travels along side us
Wherever we go

You will witness the bold acts of strangers without faces

To push someone in
When will you change places?

    a beautiful poem. you’re very talented when it comes to writing poems. i am not a kind person, I wish I was but I’m too much of a self-adsorbed person.

      It doesn’t take much at all, youd think it would be automatic.
      Unfortunate I’m far too aware of people with exceptionally dry feet 🤷‍♀️
