Kindness

Kindness, it’s a relative word
Not everybody's kind all the time, I know I’m not


Everyone that is living or has ever lived
Has some kindness in them


Think of the first truly evil person
That comes to your mind


I think of Adolph Hitler
He killed millions of people for a horrible reason


I think that deep down inside (you may need to stick a flashlight down his throat)
Everyone has some light in them, even if it’s artificial


Kindness is like a disease, a very good one
That spreads around when its not contained inside


But who says you should try to hold it back
Spread happiness and you’ll cancel out the evil


You may think it will be hard
Evil is death but also the eternal longing for power


And how can you beat power when you have none yourself
Well, I won’t lie to you, it’s not always going to be easy


You’re little brother destroys your science project
It’s hard to hold back, I know - I have two little sisters


But try your best to smile and avoid a bigger and worse situation
and you might just start a chain reaction


What is a chain reaction, you say
the Merriam Webster dictionary says it is


“A series of events so related to each other that each one initiates the next”
Rachel Scott knew that a chain reaction can spread kindness further than any one person


She tested that every day she was alive
And so will I.
