Kindness isn’t a garnish

Its the whole meal.
If you can only be kind
When everything is dandy
Then your brand of kindness
Is of the cheapest kind-
Flimsy and unreliable.
Kindness counts the most
When it comes least naturally,
When the other person
Doesn’t deserve it,
When you don’t feel like it.
Kindness isn’t a luxury good
An extra piece of luggage
Something to consider at the end-
‘Kind’ is the best way
To be human.
