810. Not even once

Not even once
Did my inner life take me away
From the outer world.

My inner life is kindness incarnate.
It made me aware of the needs
Of the outer world.

My inner life taught me
What to love in God —
Everything.

My inner life taught me
Whom to serve in the outer world —
Everyone.
