I wonder why in some places it is hatred that rules the hearts and minds of others – love is so far more rewarding and allows us the ability to understand and appreciate people who are different from ourselves.

Love & Hate
Love & Hate

 

Love allows us the capacity to grow, empowering us to love more. We cannot say we have had too much love – of love there is no measure. But hatred sickens humanity. Hatred shrinks our entire being making us smaller, more vulnerable, more scared, more angry.

Love & Hate Went on a Date

Love and hate went on a date
It was not planned
It was not fate
Both wanted to change
The other
Love showed Hate compassion
Hate responded with aggression
‘You do not know me’
Hate exclaimed!
‘But I see your fears’
Replied Love

‘I have no fears!’
Cried Hate
‘Then why do you hate’
Asked Love
‘Hate is power, it keeps me strong’
Hate retorted angrily
‘But you are lonely’
Observed Love
Hate turned his back on Love
Love reached out
‘I will love you unconditionally’

Hate shuddered
All Hate wanted was to fight
Love changed that
Hate hung his head in shame
Hate found unknown feelings stir within
Shame, guilt, and a loss of power
Confused he turned to look on the face of Love
It was a mirror, a reflection
And in that moment
Hate chose Love
And so found true power  – the power of Love
