One Way (a poem)

Think a life of
judgement,
accusal,
condemnation,
and self-righteousness
is difficult?
Try a life of
love,
grace,
acceptance,
and selflessness.
One way
is broad and easy;
one
is narrow and treacherous.
One way
leads to division and death;
one
brings unity and life.
It is not the task of humanity to decide
who is wrong,
what is holy,
who is out,
who will never measure up.
Rather to be human means to strive for
affirmation of personhood,
embracing the ever-present sacred,
unmitigated inclusion,
building one another up.
