This poem talks about how I feel about the world overall. In the past few years I've seen so many horrible things. There is still kindness but it seems like there isn't enough of it.

***

I'm so tired of living this life,

It's so full of hate and pain,

There's so much darkness everywhere,

And so little to gain.

*

I see cruelty all around me,

I try to help as much as I can,

But it feels like no one else is trying,

To assist me or take a stand.

*

I know that I have my bad days,

I know I make mistakes,

But I try not to repeat them,

Just for humanity's sake.

*

You can also do the right thing,

No matter your reason why,

Show people that kindness still exists,

Show them you're willing to try.

*

Not everyone is cruel and heartless,

I know that as a fact,

But this world has become so cold,

So worn out and unbelievably cracked.

*

Be the one who opens their eyes,

Be the one who takes the first step,

Because this world needs more kindness,

It needs all of your help.

***

"Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see"

-Mark Twain
