POETRY: Flowing Thoughtfulness, by Mattie J. T. Stepanek

When one person
Is thoughtful to another,
The thoughtfulness
Gets carried on and on.
It is like a river of kindness,
Once blocked by rocks,
That is suddenly opened
By a single person’s
Kind thought or act.
The river runs freely again,
And continues to flow,
Moving more rocks and
Reaching the hearts of others.
When one person
Is thoughtful to another
The thoughtfulness
Gets carried on and on.
The more we get together
And help each other,
The more friendship
There can be throughout
Many different places.
The friendship can begin
Like a small stream
In a single neighborhood,
And then expand throughout
A river of districts, states,
Countries, and even continents.
When one person
Is thoughtful to another,
The thoughtfulness
Gets carried on and on.
Soon, we could have
A whole ocean of friendships,
And that’s how
The world was created,
And how
It should always be.
