Narrow minded people
With hateful vicious minds
Venting their vile threats and language
On social media online
They take to streets in numbers
Feeling safe within a pack
Trying to find the courage
That when alone they lack.
Its disgusting and repulsive
The things some people post
To those they understand least
And so because of this hate most.
The people don’t like anyone
Who is different from them
Easy to blame others for all of their failings.
Now I don’t hate these people
I feel sorrow and pity for them
And I would much rather try to help them
By showing them the richness of different cultures
Different colours, faiths and views
Show them that coexistence is the enlightened truth.
I show them nothing but unconditional love
And unconditional compassion
I do this for myself as well as them
And understand we’re all driven by passion
But that sometimes we have to question if what we believe
Is actually true
Or maybe we’re deluding ourselves
And doing things others manipulate us to do.
I offer to these people always an olive branch of peace
In hope they will one day touch it and their negative ways may cease
We must not give up hoping
We must not give up the dream
We must not end up being like them
Violent and hateful to such an extreme
We must always offer to all our love.
