When kindness doesn't work
Being kind does not always work.
But when it doesn't work
The things that would have worked,
would have worked only for a short while.
The things that would have worked
would have broken principles
could have broken relationships
could have broken trust,....
Too often I thought not-being-kind was the way
but almost always it was regretted sooner rather than later.
Whenever there is an opportunity to be kind,
let us make the right choice
