243. Hatred

With global politics slowly regressing into a hateful, war-inducing, mess, I took the time to write this poem about hate.. 

Narrowed minds breed widened mouths,

From widened mouths spew bigger lies, 

The bigger lies fuel greater fear. 

A greater fear unreal. 

With widened minds and fewer words, 

Those fewer words more pertinent, 

We shout with focus, not unheard, 

For truth we fight. We heal.
