Who Hates?

In ruminating on June 12, 2016 at 5:42 pm
Who hates? And why?
Differences? Appearances? Perceptions? Beliefs?
Look closely. Very closely:
Ignorance grows suspicion
Suspicion grows fear
Fear grows hate
Hate grows ignorance
Ignorance blinds
Suspicion segregates
Fear isolates
Hate corrodes
Who hates? And why?
Haters gonna hate
what they don’t understand
what they don’t understand
Look again:
Understanding grows confidence
Confidence grows trust
Trust grows love
Love grows understanding.
Understanding illuminates
Confidence embraces
Trust integrates
Love builds
Who hates? And why?
Look closely.
