Kind Eyes

Most feelings are materialistic, 

like receiving a gift or being complimented,

or getting a splendid grade on a test, 

or wearing a nice outfit that day.

I desire deeper feelings.

What makes me feel good every day is not receiving, 

but giving.

There is nothing more rewarding 

than watching someone's eyes light up

when you do something kind,


Giving them good food, 

giving them a nice compliment, 

helping them with some homework.

If everybody gave as much kindness

as I love to give, 

there could very well be no drama, no tension between friends

just lots of people loving each other each day.


That's what brightens my day.

Multiple people just being kind,

because they can be.
