It Just Made Me

Could we possibly say
“My heart, it just made me,”
When we look in the face
Of our deadliest foe,
And dare live out grace?

Could we possibly say,
“My heart, it just made me,”
When we stand side by side
With the stranger among us
And say, “Please abide?”

Could we possibly say,
“My heart, it just made me,”
When we let go of judgment
And know that the other
Is our self as well?

Could we possibly say,
“My heart, it just made me,”
When, to give and receive,
We choose forgiveness,
As we choose to breathe.
