On finding your tribe

One of the greatest possibilities
Of the ongoing human experiment
Is that the people we find kinship with
May not share our blood
Our skin
Or our beliefs,
But have the eyes
To see one another truly.
With hearts that have the depth and breadth
To hold space for each other.
We do not need to be the same
To walk with one another
But we do need the latitude of spirit
That allows our neighbor
To fully be themselves,
Savoring their presence,
Rejoicing in their very humanity,
Knowing that they too
Are eager to do the same for us.
