Just the other day I met a friendly man His career is air conditioning He spoke of growing up on a farm And seemed pleased with life. Then I noticed one of his arms-the right one Was undevolped I thought this man has gone through life With this disability I'm sure at times he must have suffered rejection By seemingly normal people Yet he seems content now. Later that day as I walked into a convenience store I passed and smiled at a man barely five feet tall He smiled back at me And I thought It must be a tough life Being a man and being so small What discrimination has he had to deal with? Many that we meet in our daily lives Have problems that don't show up as easily as these did So let us remember wherever we are To smile, be kind and try to make everyone's life A little easier. By doing this, we also bring happiness to ourselves. Our smiles and small kindnesses are amplified.
