Open up your eyes to the world’s artistry
but avert them from its ceasesless foibles
(For surely we have our own, enough).
Open up your hands to the other’s touch
but restrain your fists from the raging fight
(For no doubt we’ll taste of their return).
Open up your love to the humanity all about you
but be not deceived by the cruelty returned
(For likely grace abounds in ways we cannot know).
