be gentle with yourself
as you are with others

you are a child of the universe
as are they

you have a right to be here
they do, too
and whether or not it is clear
to you
or them

there is no doubt
that the universe is unfolding
as it should
so
as we are gentle with others
let us be gentle with ourselves
