I’m a poet
Not a politician,

But it’s sometimes hard
To strike the right balance
Between doing my job
And needlessly offending someone,

There are some kindnesses
You just never forget,
Ones you can always go back to,
Ones that bring tears to your eyes
When you’re as dry as a bone,
And melt your heart
When your heart’s just a stone,

And the funny thing is,
The ones who gave you these kindnesses
Might never know
The effect they’ve had on your life.
