when things seem hopeless and helpless
when life feels full of gloom and doom
when climbing out of bed hurts my head

kindness is my remedy
kindness is my saviour
my best friend, my pick up pill

when fear and anxiety fill me
when doubt and demons be
only one thing can set me free

kindness is my remedy
kindness is my saviour
my best friend, my pick up pill

when bullying and bickering bludgeon
when change and caution are chaotic
when boredom gnaws me inside out

kindness is my remedy
kindness is my saviour
my best friend, my pick up pill

when harm and negativity haunt me
when I feel threatened and all at sea
when terror grips demanding I flee

kindness is my remedy
kindness is my saviour
my best friend, my pick up pill

when my cooking is not so delicious
when others seem malicious
and taunts escalate to vicious

kindness is my remedy
kindness is my saviour
my best friend, my pick up pill

even as I struggle to be truly kind
kindness to others is the ideal key
kindness to myself can set me free
