Kind and Gentle

With tender gloves I gentle thee
Remove abrasion from my tone
I look to love to be my guide
In the words I utter to your mind
I aim to give the blocks to build
And not instruments to knock you down
I breach the oath of care and kindness
Way too oft to be mistake
My attempts a hack in relationships
A learning put forth every day
To be better and more empathetic
Offered to all another that I meet
I fail myself this way to treat
