Poetry

Kindness

 

Peter Adel

I like the random act of kindness
How you stop and listen
How you smile, nod and lend a hand
When you shed a tear
Just by watching the news
Are you the one who shelters a stranger
Without questioning his dignity
Your ears can hear the sigh of hunger
In Sudan
Your eyes can see the fear in the children’s eyes
With your eyes closed
In Baghdad

-- October 2004
