Kindness

Kindness

Some say the world
is full of crusty people…
Hey dudes,
I’ve got some news for you.
What you give out
is what you tend to get back.

Just look at the facts, my friends—
I talk to around fifty people
every day.
Each day, it’s not the same
fifty people.
That equals
around three-hundred fifty
people each week
or around eighteen thousand
people per year.
The vast majority
of all those people
are very nice to me…
Geeze, do you suppose
it’s because I’m nice to them too?

Have kind consideration
for everyone you meet.
Treat everyone
how you expect to be treated
Don’t wait for them
to be kind to you first.
Don’t just do it on facebook
and twitter
do it everywhere you go.
I guarantee you will find
the more kindness you show
the more you’ll get back.

Dewey Dirks and Elaine Cunningham
