what I do not understand,
is why someone's skin color
or way of life
gives you a reason to hate them.
all humans are different,
it's human nature.
why hate your siblings?
why pull the trigger against one another?
why lock each other away like animals?
why try to convert or change?
the hands you could use to hold others
are full of weapons, bombs, chains, and cruel words.
let's replace our weapons with flowers,
our cruel words with hellos
our chains with hugs
our bombs with love.
the war against fellow man is not worth it
because love and understanding is all we need.
