Walt Whitman - As One

Lord of the All,

Grant me the vision to see myself and my enemy as one,
Myself in my enemy, my enemy in myself,
One in being, knowledge, and life,
For the One is in us all, the very monad of our being,
The flowering flame that kindles us, 
the life and knowing and being,
And makes us turn our faces ever back to that sun 
that shines in us the light of the Good,
Sets our path back ever back ever sourceward,
Enemy now self and self now enemy,
Not twain ever asunder, but one in all,
For we have but to remember
We are all One.
