kindness

kindness is all you really need
to live a full life
you don’t need great intellect
or qualification
you don’t need power
or enormous wealth
neither success nor failure
really matter
but, to this heart and mind,
to lack any sense of kindness
towards life, self, creatures
and other beings
is a great misery

i dont care how enlightened you are
or how rich you are
if you can’t be kind
you have missed the mark.
