Random Kindness

By Gabrielle Bowman

Armored with a thick heart

A valiant beast of beauty

She leaves behind a legacy


Of smiles and sincerity

She provides an ear to the

Plights of friend or foe


Because we owe our beef

A resolution

A last hurrah


So cheers to an open ear

And an open heart


Love thy neighbor

Even if it’s the grumpy old man who

Yells at you to stay off their lawn


Because empathy is everything

And our mortality, seeks morality
