Let Us Uplift

There is no one virtuous
In the compact of a mirror
That sees the ugliness of others
And only their own perfection
Or chooses to highlight
The failings of their fellow man
When they know
Their reflection is no better
For we should all acknowledge
Each other’s shortfalls
But put spotlights on their success
For none achieves more
Than is encouraged by a friend
Life is not a competition
To be more superior than others
But rather a joy to uplift one another
And a celebration of each other’s triumphs
