I’m Only Good At Being Kind

I ain’t good at dreaming
Beaming, screaming, scheming
Ain’t either good at dancing
Prancing, financing, romancing
I thought I was good at math
But no it’s not like that
I’m only good at being kind
And that counts for nothing

I ain’t good at flying
Crying, trying or replying
Neither am I good at sighing
Lying, prying or dying
I thought I was good at everything
But I ain’t good at anything
I’m only good at being kind
And that counts for nothing

Should I learn some knitting
Splitting, gritting or quitting?
Should I do some reading
Breeding, feeding, kneading?
Or should I learn how to run
Or finally get some work done
I’m only good at being kind
And that counts for nothing

I’m not good at being good
Drinking, thinking or eating food
Or being the best that I could
Or doing what I should
I ain’t good at looking ahead
Or even at looking behind
I’m only good at being kind
And that counts for nothing

  1. Sorry to be the one to tell you this, but kindness — it is everything.
    Ok. Yeah. You are pulling my leg I know. But I repeat: kindness is everything.
    Let’s make kindness attractive again.
    I think Mr. Rogers said that. And I second it. (And I know you third it)
    Thanks again for an amazingly lovely read. Simply lovely. TYSVM.

  2. A brilliant write Frank letting the reader come (or not) to his own conclusion; even though it’s “everything” being kind counts for “nothing”! In this world, the things that really matter can rarely be counted. 😉
    This brings to my mind the lyrics of “Karma Police” from the group Radiohead:
    “Karma Police
    arrest this man,
    he talks in math,
    he buzzes like fridge
    he’s like a de-tuned radio.”
    Anyway, Great write Frank Thanks for sharing that!🙏
