The Golden Rule, to do to every other
As you would have them to do you in turn,
Implies that you're the sister or the brother
Of everyone you meet, whose first concern
Is to show light and love familiarly,
Since families are by definition kin
Or kindred, and thus kind as they can be,
For to act otherwise is careless sin.
But till you see in others your own soul
And know them as your brothers, one by one,
Your life will fill with misery and dole,
And darkness shall obliterate the sun.
Like Jesus, though, you may be resurrected
If you but choose to live by love directed.
