In the final post for our Mental Health Awareness Week blog series, we’d like to share this poem, written by an anonymous carer.
It brought a smile to our face, we hope it does the same for you too.
Kindness can start out small,a thing unseen
Just like an ant that softly goes along
And trundles back, takes good news to the queen
And then the ant returns a thousand strong.
Or kindness could be something massive,rare,
Like some great whale at sea,silent,alone,
And all who spy the whale gasp,smile and stare
And marvel,wonder,at the kindness shown.
Kindness is like the mushroom and the spore
It spreads from earth to earth across lands
Be kind and bring that cheer to more and more
And how a toadstool that first act expands.
This sonnet might be mawkish, twee and naff
But lets be kind and make each other laugh!
