I love the gentle kindness in these words, and they are so true of real love.
Sadly, they are far away from how we often treat ourselves.
We are not wholly bad or good
We who live our lives under Milk Wood
And Thou, I know will be the first
To see our best side, and not our worst.
Minister Eli Jenkin’s prayer in Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood, sometimes known as the Sunset poem
