THE HIGH WAY
There is no better way to be inclined
Than toward charity, toward being kind:
To live that way we’re naturally designed,
The progeny of an all-loving Mind.
Yet those who seek to willfully divorce
Their motives from the mandate of our Source
Will find themselves then bound upon a course
Leading to consternation and remorse—
Or if not that, because their hearts are hard
And they give their posterity no regard,
Unwary that their fortunes are ill-starred,
They’ll find their expectations all are marred,
For there’s no better way to be inclined
Than toward charity—toward being kind.
