Kindness and understanding make us special.
Kind encounter

As I wandered through the thick
gloomy forest, tired and timid,
the sun started sinking rapid,
and a veil of darkness fell quick.

Afraid, lost, gripped by panic
I started running, stumbling and
the sounds of the wild frightened
me more, making me frantic.

Unaware, I was of what happened later.
A warm glow greeted me when I awoke.
The kind owner of the log cabin spoke
words of care and warmth greater

than those of my own kith and kin.
Lucky I was, to meet a man of kindness
in the middle of nowhere whose patience
and acts of understanding inspire us to win

the fierce battle against powers of darkness,
deliver us from the clutches of desolation,
nourish us with love and consolation,
strengthen us with courage and confidence.
