Why must there be hate?
Why must the lovely be killed?
What possesses those
Who cause inestimable
Harm to individuals?
Somehow combat must
Ensue within hearts, homes, schools,
That nurturing such malice;
LOVE must permeate, prevail.
Kindness, LOVE, bringing wisdom,
To the commonest of days;
Change may begin, take hold, win.
It can happen now
If our hearts – love and care, embrace
For the human race,
Treasuring each thing shared here,
LOVE leaves nothing still undone.
When I read of people meeting a violent end, it cuts into my heart and makes me feel that there should be better ways to handle life. All the stories ended, when a person dies are such a horrible tragedy to me.
