Live To Be Kind

High against the tide I' m flowing,
Different from your kind- hard-going;
You can't read my mind, I hold keys,
Counted on the kind- how naïve

Still wish you light,
Heart lives on smiles,
Do not cope with fights,
I still live to be kind

Cold against the wind- still going,
Don't fit with your breed- ignoring;
Step on ones in need- not my thing;
Words crushed by vile deeds- who's sorry?

Hanging upside down in wonder,
Dragged and pushed around, no, no more;
Used my open heart- so hurtful,
Ripped my soul apart- how could you?
