To see another’s faults reflected within you, 

To hear their ways echo all they’ve been through,

To hold their dream dear and try to assist them, 

To believe in them when all others resist them,

To give them your time like it’s theirs to begin with,

To trust they mean well when they seem offensive,

To be sick with worry if they suffer in health,

To love your neighbour as you love yourself.

Inspired by Leviticus 19:18

~Poet of Ephraim
