What makes us human?

My eyes go moist

When I see kindness

On the streets

At home, At work

In the movies.

You need not be in need

To experience kindness.

It could be a simple gesture

As keeping the door open

When one’s hands are full.

Giving your place in the queue

To some one behind

Who is holding a toddler.

It is giving up the last bite

For the colleague who loved the dish.

The big acts of kindness

Need a standing ovation

From the entire humanity.

It is these small acts

That go unnoticed

That makes us human.
