RAK Submission: Just Be Kind

Here’s a poem I wrote about the power of kindness. Please feel free to post it if desired.

JUST BE KIND   by John Ptacek

Don’t concern yourself with toppling governments.

Instead, topple the walls between yourself and others.

Kindness in the face of chaos

is revolution.

Don’t attempt to eliminate world hunger.

Instead, eliminate your hunger for self-aggrandizement.

Buried underneath your mighty illusions

is a mightier capacity for kindness.

Don’t seek to attain a higher level of consciousness.

Your consciousness is as high as it needs to be when you clear a path for kindness.

Don’t tie yourself in knots trying to express love, a word pulverized of meaning.

You’ll blow the lines every time.

Instead, just be kind.
