Not to hurt our humble brethren
our brothers and sisters
is our first duty to them
to hold them secure
in our hearts
is our noble cause

For we see in them
reflections
of our own pain
of our own suffering
and we can not turn away

but we can't stop there
not to hurt
is only a step
only half a noble cause

Healing is not always painless
and not to hurt
does not mean
not to cause pain
our intentions make
all the difference

We have a higher mission
to be of service to them
to help them heal
and not to hurt
to again hold them secure
whenever they require it

Kelly,

I really liked reading this, and as with all our poetry it tells a lot about the survivor who wrote it. You are so right: intentions make all the difference in the world.

Much love,
Larry
