Be your own saviour,
Learn to turn the salty water of your tears
Into something as sweet as wine.
Learn to walk across the ocean of your problems
Rather than drown beneath them.
Cure your own blindness -
Learn to see what you could not before.
Heal your own heart -
Learn to forgive what you could not before.
Remove others blindness -
Only be honest to their senses.
Heal others hearts -
Accept them and their flaws.
Speak to them as equals,
Hold hope for them when they cannot.
Learn to love yourself regardless of others,
In this way you will always be beloved.
And then learn to love others, easily and freely,
So they might be held whilst they learn to love themselves.
These things are not easy
And you will fail and fail again.
You are not a God,
You are human.
But the total of your failures,
Is the sum of your success.
And if Christ is the son of God
And we are all his children,
We must share something
Of this genetic code for divinity.
Our miracles may be small
And ordinary in comparison.
But every time we achieve them
We bring ourselves a little closer
To our true selves.
This is humanity,
Bearing the burden of its life
Across its shoulders like a cross,
Trudging uphill, toward the point
Where it can become
It’s own Messiah.
