For Rachel Joy Scott

My name is Joy, please don’t be sad for me
I challenge you to look within your heart
Then ask yourself, who do you want to be
Use kindness and compassion as your start

Each person needs a friend like me or you
This chain reaction’s stronger with your link
It’s built from kindness in the things you do
Each act, though small, is bigger than you think

It doesn’t matter what you choose to wear
Wear funny hats or wear some silly shoes
Although it may seem like some people care
What matters is the thoughtfulness you choose

So, don’t be sad for me; please don’t be blue
I challenge you to be both kind and true.
