Can I stay the tears of others?

I can stay the tears of others, if...

"I can stay the tear of others, if I can see myself as diminished of their sorrows.
I can hasten time when everyone will be able to rejoice in freedom." 
(Poem/text by Jewish Fund for Justice)

And if I can see myself as the companion...
And if I can see myself as the companion, of those fighting oppression,

I can honor the struggle of people everywhere
to gain dignity and deliverance from bondage.

I can honor the struggle...

"When I look in the mirror
who will I see?" 

When I look in the mirror...
Who will I see?

(This last, a photo montage by Amir Dread)
