Let Hate Serve Only One Purpose

Today, like so many other days,
I have woken up with love in my heart
And fear in my mind
This deepest longing for love’s healing balm
Yet a nagging anxiety about life itself
Ah! The great human dilemma
Caught in the crossfire
Between love and fear

There we hang, each of us
Swinging between love’s innocence
And fear’s defenses

And most, those who believe
What the world shows them,
Over the years, they lean toward fear
And it crusts them over
Gnarls their fragile bodies
And renders them cynical
They become
Part of the problem.

Not me…
I have heard fear’s voice
And hate’s scream
Both of them desperate for love
And I have chosen love
Over and over
No matter how loud
The noise
Or how great the fear

Let hate serve only one purpose
To make love more resolute.
