God's Kin (Poem)

There is no summit you may not attain,
No purpose that you may not yet achieve,
If you will wait serenely, and believe
Each seeming loss is but a step to'rd gain.

Between the mountain tops lie vale and plain;
Let nothing make you question, doubt or grieve;
Give only good, and good alone receive;
And as you welcome joy, so welcome pain.
That which you most desire awaits your word;
Throw wide the door and bid it enter in.

Speak, and the strong vibrations shall be stirred;
Speak, and above earth's loud, unmeaning din
Your silent declaration shall be heard.
All things are possible to God's own kin.
