All Things New

A thing, if lasting, is not born in a moment.
A turning of the tide can't be controlled or contrived.

For the heart is slow to open
The eyes are slow to see;
A singularity of time
Cannot permanently impress these.

To be agreeable is agreeable
But difficult to attain.
Better a kind regard for one's neighbors
Than indifference or disdain.

Far better to see the soul
Than to never look beyond the skin.
Better the hand of friendship be extended
Than one finger accusing of fault or sin.

My heart needs to open
My eyes - learn to see.

"Behold, I make all things new"
Don't forget. You promised me.
