Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair,

 But manifestations of strength and resolution.

Each of us has lived through some devastation, some loneliness,

Some weather super storms or life’s     storms of  adversities’ 

When we witness this in others we sometimes say,

I understand how you feel, Because I’ve been there myself.

We must support and help each other, for each of us are more alike

Than we are unalike.
