When you’ve had it up to here

and can’t take anymore,

Just be kind.

 

When every button has been pushed

and there’s no sense in arguing,

Just be kind.

 

When your fears suck the air out of you

and you can barely breathe,

Just be kind.

 

When lullabies, stories, kisses

and a million tickles do not work,

Just be kind.

 

When the food just sits there,

and gets pushed around and criticized,

Just be kind.

 

When the same bad habits pop up

time and time again,

Just be kind.

 

When the thing you really needed done didn’t get done

and you said it a hundred times,

Just be kind.

 

When all you feel like doing is crawling back to bed

and let the tears fall down your face,

Just be kind.

 

When everything you were expecting didn’t

turn out the way you’d hoped,

Just be kind.

 

When it feels like no one loves you

and you are in this all alone,

Just be kind.

 

When you know you’re messed up

and so has everyone else,

Just be kind.

 

When they’re scared frozen

and you can’t understand why,

Just be kind.

 

When their best isn’t good enough

and you feel blame starting to rise,

Just be kind.

 

When your questions are met with silence

and all they do is shrug,

Just be kind.

 

When patience is wearing thin

and the only way out is to yell,

Just be kind.

 

When time is running out

and there are places to be, things to do,

Just be kind.

 

When you look in the mirror and wince

and hate what you see,

Just be kind.

 

When you feel as if you have nothing left to give

and you might just give up,

Just be kind.
