Hope even in hateful minds

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.
