prayer

If I could see the silver string of Light
That connects me to you
And you to everyone else
And all of us together;
Then perhaps I would think much deeper
Before I harmed you.
For in harming you I would be hurting myself.

If I could ask for one gift
It would be to see these cords of Life
That unite us.

Let me see them every moment,
So that every thought of mine
Becomes a song of compassion.

The last para is icing and the essence.

Brightens up the entire composition beautifully

beautiful thought, 'For in harming you I would be hurting myself.' from whatever I've read, you seem to have a great capability of expressing stuff that remains at an inchoate level for most of us...
