Eternity's Mark

During my reading this week I came across this short quote from Kierkegaard:
"...the neighbour is eternity's mark on every human being."
Soren Kierkegaard
It prompted this short prayer/poem:


God help me discern in my enemy, your image;
in the unlovely and unlovable, my own reflection;
in the poor and oppressed, your presence;
on the powerful and oppressors, your fingerprints;
and in everyone,
those near and far,
like me, and unlike me,
those who like me and those I don't like,
eternity's mark.

Shalom
