HATE

I see hate in many eyes,
I see intolerance in actions,
The mouth may speak many lies,
But the truth is in peopleís reactions.

Why must we face bigotry?
Why canít we be a melting pot?
Then everyone could see,
All the world and what itís got.

Hate is not a white disease,
Unlike us, hate is color blind.
It is something you can never appease,
It is the scourge of mankind.

We fight wars in Godís name.
Wars against color and race.
Donít we all see the shame.
For stripping God of his grace.

Why is hate such an obsession?
Why do we dwell on it so?
Why is there so much aggression?
Is this the legacy we wish to bestow?

Put your black hand in my white,
And realize that you are my brother.
Letís put an end to the fight,
And instead learn to love one another.

Letís sow love instead of hate,
Letís learn to turn the other cheek.
Even now itís not too late,
To find the love you wish to seek.

Bravo. Well expressed, you kept the rhyme scheme up. Though it falters a little sometimes because you may have been trying a bit to hard to make the rhyme I still give this 2 thumbs up just for the message it represents. Bravo.
