Kill Em With Kindness

As was with most, I was taught as a little girl
Not to spit hurtful words nor insults should we hurl
Because they would say if it were done to you
It would hurt your feelings and we knew this to be true
All along there were the ones who still did this with anger inside
From someone maybe at home from which they could not hide
So we're taught to still be polite to all those that are not in return
So that maybe it'll rub off for any kindness they weren't taught nor ever
It's sad that for whatever reason someone was ever so unloving or cruel
Be the standard for their behavior, no instead becomes the unwritten rule
How do we teach our kids right from wrong if there's no others to follow this
These poor children will never have the greatness of ours and sadly I now miss
Just to get through this life now I have to certainly admit
I'm a good person truly. So now I remind me not to forget
