Have another look at what you've done
And then rejoice at all the good you see,
Pleased with how you've whittled what might be,
Pleased with seeds you've planted one by one!
Yet there are many toxins still to come
Floating on the tides unnaturally
Out of greed or ignorance as we
Unravel mysteries of rain and sun.
Remember that the antidote is love
That one administers in every act,
Embracing life and beauty and each other.
Each act of love one poisoned drop removes,
Now by example, eloquence, or fact,
To heal some grace that else we might have lacked,
Here for all who would such gifts recover.
