Be Kind

Cruel words launched

Behind lit screens.

In anonymity, you don’t

Hear the screams,

As the hate and bile

You spew in haste

Makes others feel

They’re just a waste.


Do you not care?

Or see? Or know?

How each barb and taunt

Just drags them low

And scars and wounds

Their fractured soul.

Is hurt and pain

Your only goal?


You don’t need sticks,

Or use for stones

When words hurt

More than broken bones.

So don’t hit send,

Choose not to share.

Have a concern about

Their mental care.


In a world where you

Can be anything,

Why crush a heart

When you can help it sing?

Don’t cause pain or hurt,

Instead, please find,

It in yourself to just

Be kind.
