Born of Love

From the peaks of self-esteem
flowers of kindness are borne.
When seeds of goodwill and charity
are sown in fertile soil,
eternal merit blossoms.

Kind thoughts look toward Wisdom's light;
kind words inspire flights of confidence.
Since acts of kindness are gifts born of love,
giving with kindness wakens tenderness--
the way that empathy springs from the soul.
