Only kindness matters in the end.

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we’re all okay
And not to worry ’cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these


I won’t be made useless
I won’t be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith

In the end only kindness matters
