Teaching Kindness

She was a sacred, gifted-hands of sorts 

smuggling her own kindness, into unwanted things 
she herself understood, a crippled kind of loneliness

understood gigantic forced place-mats by the door, 
 wheelchair-accessible ramps

the back door, off the side rails

disabled stalls in corner sized restrooms


she holds doors for the walking,
 they say- excuse me, nod a bit of thank you

with no legs of her own…

studies have shown 91 % of all teens believe kindness is dead – rather died long-ago 
she lives to teach them kindness without legs, 

of her own.

    This is beautiful, Krissy. But, how sad that so many teens think that kindness is dead. I could really relate to this piece as I am a wheelchair user myself and am unable to walk. It doesn’t bother me but I have encountered many of the things your poem speaks of. I think kindness is essential for life and am thankful for the kindnesses done to me. I also consider myself very lucky to feel nothing but kindness for others, no matter who they are. Thank you for sharing this.
