When it counts
I try to be kind and I'm a pretty nice guy most of the time.
If things are going well, I'd say I'm a pretty nice guy. I love making people smile and when they smile, I smile. If we agree on something I light up and get excited. When my job is going well, when the bills are all paid, and things are generally good - then I'm a pretty nice guy.
I'm a pretty nice guy except when it counts. When the chips are down, if someone is mean or upset with me then I get scared and I'm an ASS. If you lash out at me, chances are I'm going to lash back.
It's easy to be nice sometimes. I want to be kind ALWAYS. May we all learn to be kind and understanding with one another - when it counts.
