Small World

It's a small world
When you're wrapped up in hate.
Think of the things you're missing:
Friendships with people who are
Different from you; 
Different colors, different attitudes, different lives.
What else is missing?
Loving family relationships,
Can't tolerate someone
You can't control, can you?
Much less love them.
What about a mate?
Out of the question.
How can you love a woman
When you don't respect yourself?
I hope, dear brother,
That your hate keeps you warm.
Because as long as you keep it 
Wrapped around you
Nothing else will.
