Born seemingly pathetic
the boy grew up learning patience
with seemingly pathetic creatures
learning to see the divine in all
and in this vision invited them
and empowered them and himself
to rise
to be who they really are
rather than what they seem.

I really like how you placed the words "to rise" on their own line, how this opens a door to those who may assume they have no way up or out.
