Hate Flows



Hate cleaves the mortal soul

Like water cuts through stone

Grinding away the loving whole

And leaving the marrowed bone


It culls away the kindness

Leaving canyons so very deep

Being awash in that blindness

Perspective is hard to keep


I must stem this constant tide

Or forever be left changed

As what was once good inside

Is turbulently rearranged


I cannot swim this torrent

I must build the hopeful dam

For hate is never well meant

And not a part of who I am

    Don’t let it take us down – we are stronger than that.

  2. Hate is a taught emotion, one we are not equipped with at birth. How sad that we find a world right now so absorbed in this mean emotion! Thanks for words of encouragement to stand strong the tide!

    Oof. I felt this. I agree, we cannot allow hate to consume us. We must spread love & hold steadfast to hope. Now more than ever!
