Courage to Love

It takes far more courage
to love than it does to hate,
far more courage to have compassion
than to inflict harm,
far more courage to see the God in you
no matter what you think of me.

It takes far more courage
for me to step away
from engaging in verbal warfare
once my mind has armed itself
with its incessant words
of mass destruction.

It takes far more courage
to lay down my weapons
of judgment and criticism
and allow my heart to lead
because my heart
sees the God in you.

It takes courage to Love
and courage to embrace with Compassion.
How courageous can you be?
