Love vs Hate

Through the lens of a scope,hate watches,
Bam,bam,on the butt,two more notches,
In front of their eyes,life flashes,
The weak at heart,it snatches,
A mustard seed to a melon it grows,
Slowly but surely,engulfing souls,
Cold as snow,consuming flesh like crows,
Demolishing friendship,constructing foes,
Bursting hells door,into our world hate pours,
In the heart of evil,hate soars,
Knocking the LORD,children doors,
TRYING to conquer GODS' Kingdom,from shore to shore,
GOD stretch out his hands,flowing galore,
Love is the challenger,Love is the cure,
Love is the victor,hate no more.....

    Well written and expressed. Ghandi said that fear was the true enemy we think it is hate but it is fear. I do not know the exact words of his quote but it is an intresting thought to ponder. I guess out of the seeds of fear hate can grow. I like your style Richard, keep them coming, your poems can be a instrument of healing.

    Great work. I love it. But where is real love? when every one us including pastors are now lovers of money than soul winning. Great work. Nice to read your work.

    The Bible says the battle is not ours. It also says that through the birth, life, message, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the battle is already won. Excellent news! Love reigns! Hugs, Catie :)
