To Love 

To love like Jesus,
not color blindly, but in all colors.

Seeing each as unique and wonderfully made,

 with different shades of God’s beautiful creation.

To look into eyes and see compassion, not differences.

To have a heart to serve, and not be served.

To allow people to be their true selves, instead of holding expectations that they must rise too.

To have the humility to remain calm and true to your nature, instead of reacting in anger that will soon be regretted. 

To meet someone where they are at, and do what you can in action to be there for them.

To grieve for others that are self destructing, while having a heart to move to bring them to truth in the most gentle way. 

To show kindness beyond measure, through persecution and hate, having a love that will never change or falter. 

Show Compassion 

Burning eyes from tiredness and passion,
longing heart reaching for a hand to show compassion.

Pacing strides, to find a way to help minds come alive,

but they don’t see that their future can be more than trying to survive.

It’s stuck in a vicious cycle that must find a way to change,

Chains need breaking for new things to be rearranged. 

Though this journey has been exhausting, empathy will not stop. 

Appreciation will not be recipricated, but it won’t keep me from moving forward to the top. 

On the peak of the mountain I’ll stand,

Happy and proud, but my heart still looks down at the land. 

I’ll thank the Creator for using me with all of His might,

While I make my way back down for another good fight.
