the struggle to express

see, appreciate, support

nothing we do as teachers,
nothing we do as people,
is more important than to see the other,
to appreciate the other,
to let the other know we get
some portion of the effort
of the life each lives,
some portion of that of God
that each struggles to reveal, to express,

every effort needs to be seen,
needs to be appreciated,
needs to be supported,

we each are alone, 
at least in how we can feel,
we need the other, the friend,
we need the community
to open itself, and thus us,
to how full we all can be.
