If There Wasn't So Much Hate

How would everything change?

Why do people have to be so mean and hateful?

Why are people so ungrateful?

There are so many reasons to love others and be kind.

Why cannot we leave disrespect and ill-will behind?

If there wasn’t so much hate, then there wouldn’t be school shootings.

If there wasn’t so much hate, then there wouldn’t be reckless lootings.

If there wasn’t so much hate, then racism would not exist.

If there wasn’t so much hate, then heinous crimes would not persist.

If there wasn't so much hate, there wouldn't be a great divide in politics.

If there wasn't so much hate, our healthcare system wouldn't need a fix.

If there wasn't so much hate, people wouldn't have the need to fear.

If there wasn't so much hate, the military wouldn't have to use their gear.

Love is the hand that reaches for something more.

Love offers greatness and has so much in store.
