The Lifelong Goal

To wish for compassion
To pray for courage
To experience doubt
To bear sorrow
To strive for sureness—
All these are qualities
For which each of us
Should be grateful.
But to feel a genuine fellowship
For the whole human family,
To act
So that our empathy
Is evident
Wherever we go—
That's the object.
That's the life-long goal.
