We’re losing our capability for civility
We’re drowning in self induced misery
When have we ever learned from cruelty?
We bash our counterparts so brutally-
That it erodes our human ability
Why can’t we recognize our disability?
Why do we strive for uncivilized brutality?
Why do we cling to discord so hatefully?
It seems we relish in inducing misery
Rather than teaching our greatest ability
Why have we chosen to reach for futility?
It seems we don’t want the responsibility
To teach our young the accessibility
To the power to nurture and grow our fertility
So many people question “how do we do it?”
Or say “we need to do it” but offer no solutions….
The solution is one word. It’s love.
“It’s love for everyone by everyone!”
Just try this for one day.
Say “I love you.” Tell as many people you can- strangers, loved ones, enemies and friends, everyone you can! Please. Try it for just one day out of your entire existence.
And listen to your peace at day’s end
Did you smile? Does it feel good? Did you mend?
If hate or anger arises put it behind “I LOVE YOU”
And you will discover an amazing thing-
Incivility, brutality, misery and cruelty,
Hate, discord, and loss of direction will be replaced by their own counterparts-
It worked for me anyway……..If it does for you then share your truth.
I Love You,
