Day 89 – Kindness

I’ve heard the message so many times-
speak with kindness-
and I wish I could,
but how can you speak a language
you weren’t taught,
you never heard,
you were instructed to avoid,
you were told would make you weak?
It doesn’t help that one unkind remark
in passing, you didn’t mean to make,
erases all those times you really tried.
