Tipping Point

What is the tipping point, between hate and love
Perhaps a kind word or a misplaced shove

One acts with kindness, another is mean
Try looking for good, where none has been seen

Respect for difference, not fearful disdain
If treated kindly, good feelings remain

Choices can be made, we can pick the path
Love is the answer, emerse in it's bath
