We are not hate
We cannot be hate
We cannot breathe in its
Foul spittle from others
We cannot spout out its prejudice
And its destruction toward others

We are love
We must be love
We must permeate in its grace
We must pour forth its tolerance
And the beautiful acceptance of each other

How can we share one life together
When we continually find reason to hate

We must share this life together
To survive, to continually cultivate love

We are no more, and no less than
The universally united members of the human race
The Race known as We

We ... Humanity
Another beauty that pours out of a human poet's heart.
A message that every human would admire.
I would have uncapitalized the first letter unless after a period, but that's only me. Your poem, your call, and I trust your skills

Great fertile theme and you did well as usual.
Thank you for sharing.


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

So many heartbreaking violent expressions of hate - another here in the city of Colorado Springs, Colorado, US last night. Thank you very much for reading. I always look forward to hearing from you.
