I can only love

I refuse to hate what you do
I refuse to share all you do
What you bring into the world today
Because that hate will make me
As bad as you are

Hate doesn’t heal a thing
Hate only festers and
Brings more to hate forward
Hate kills the loving spark
That everyone is born is

So I lovingly raise my middle finger
And kindly say fuck you
To all those who think
The color of their skin
Makes them superior to others

I let my love flow to those
Who are hurt by their words
Who need an embrace and
Heartfelt, unwavering support,
An extended hand in friendship

And, even though it scares me,
I have learned in a lifetime of stories
On what hatred has created
That I need to speak up for love
and firmly walk in kindness and peace
