Kindness

It is the first time in years
That we have a place to shelter
Show us some mercy
Do not expose our fears
To those people who despise us
Pray, look upon our faces
And be merciful to us
 
Our journeys have been hard
In the many places we have lived
Give us some respite
For our bodies and our souls
Have taken on a bit of batter
Pray, spare us from rebuke
And let us find favor with you
 
We have long hoped and prayed
Finally, grateful to arrive here
Do let us take solace
From the storms and disasters
Always looming in the distance
Pray, forgive our many failures
And show us a little bit of kindness

My name is Oluwatoyin J. Taiwo – a Christian, an Engineer, and a Writer. I enjoy reading, travelling and watching football + lawn tennis. I love working with young people, especially teenagers. I believe that people are shaped by the words they hear or read, and our most important decisions are those we make in the first three decades of life.

  1. Pray, help us from trouble
    And deliver us from the vanity of men’s help.

    Good job Bro👍. Pardon me, I couldn’t catch the flow.🤣

  2. Hmmm… Thank you sir.
    This has brought another perspective to showing kindness to people who stay on the streets and ask for alms (I’m not sure, but I assume you’re writing in reference to them).

    1. Yea…the reference is mainly to homeless folks but we all need relief and succour after tough and draining seasons of life. So we all need to learn to be kind and overlook others’ faults because we often need people to do same for us.
