Be Truly Kind

Be Truly Kind

By Nguyet Nguyen


If one ever asks,

What’s a meaningful life?

There’d be a reply

To ‘Be Truly Kind’


Like sunshine,

Radiating warm light,

Bringing hope to life,

And making others smile.


Like music of the heart,

Dispelling grief and fears,
Spreading one’s own cheers,

And wiping others’ tears.


Like an ocean of nectar,

Blooms a heart with love

Fills a soul with peace

And kindles it with joy.


And like Wishing-gem,

Having powerful skills,

Touching others’ feelings,

And accomplishing their wills.


Let’s try to Be Truly Kind,

To Shine out


Through to others’ lives.


It’d purify our mind

Transform mind inside

Bring peace to mankind,

And make a beautiful life.


How nice!

To Be Kind,


To have a Meaningful Life!


May every single thought

In our mind

Be blessed

By ‘True Kind’,


And May every moment

 In our life

Be filled

With ‘True Kind’,


How nice!

To Be Truly Kind.
