My mind was clouded
by the bitterness of my soul
and the nagging pain in my spirit.
I was lead through the dark
by the hurt of past transgressions
committed against me
until an unexpected act of kindness
touched my dainted heart.
The fog cleared,
the bitterness melted,
the nagging pain finally seized.
This act, made me realize that
I am special, and I am worth something.
The painful events of the past never matter,
only the actions of the present.
After thinking of myself as an invisible,
valueless piece of nothingness,
this random gift received by
a stranger erased these thoughts.
Now it is my turn.
I need to spread kindness
and the joy it brings.
I vow to show love to others
as love was shown to me.
Every life is precious
and should be reminded so.
