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.
