Flowers of kindness
A small flower in the desert of greed
Sheds some fragrance, sheds a seed.
Two little flowers in the desert of need
Each a bit of fragrance, each gives a seed
Four small flowers growing among weed
Fragrance increases, and yet another seed
Flowers, eight and sixteen and soon thirty two
More and more fragrance and more seeds too.
Sixty four, two fifty six, more than a thousand soon
no more place for weed, crumbling greed and needs,
A million flowers each shed fragrance and seeds
The desert of greed and need and weed recedes
Small acts of kindness, the fragrance will spread
Greed and stress, no more; peace of mind instead
Awareness growing, weed by weed reaches death
Equality an illusion, inequality has no solution
as long as we wait for big shots' contribution
What we really need now is a kindness revolution
It won't be the crooks, the ones who now lead the greed
It won't be the sand in the desert that alleviates the need
Small acts of kindness are fragrance and seed
A billion flowers of kindness, it's easy to see.
A true revolution on its way, as fast as can be.
It depends not on presidents, but on you and on me
Inequality as in the OXFAM report: half the world's wealth is in the hands of 62 individuals.
If 7 billion others maintain it as their biggest dream to belong to the 62 or even to become number 63, greed will just keep spinning out of control. If we manage to put kindness first, that is the only solution. We do not have to give up our longing for wealth, we just have to long for kindness a little bit more than we long for wealth.
Let us make the kindness revolution a reality. Let the crooks suffocate in their crookedness. We can lead by example. We do not need titles or power, just starting to lead the kindness revolution by example :)
