Do not let it in

This brewing hatred has no place In this beautiful creation Where all of us are equal Everyone is given free will Which means we can choose To respect and offer good things Without excuses in this choice No matter what less we may have In spirit we are born to love Even with all differences Hatred leaves when we shut the door With strict refusal to enter Heidi Sands 8/24/20

Heidi, such a positive, uplifting poem. Far too many of humanity, and it includes so many of us, have so much rage. I pray to the Lord to help me with anger, and I try to think things through, getting angry has an effect on our health. Hope you have a peaceful weekend. :-)

Hatred burns the host more than the one who is the recipient of it! Forget and forgive is very much for that reason! This does not mean we should forgive the criminals and the marauding thieves who walk the society! Well said! A great poem!

I wish the same for you this fine Saturday Heidi. I'll be working around the house, listening to fine music 'Keith Whitley - Don't Close Your Eyes' at this instant. When the sun reaches it's zenith I'll be stretched out on the couch, plain giving up on those chores. Of course reading some fine poetry. A well deserved fate. -Richard

Hatred harms the heart and leaves incurable deseases in the human body. ''A SANE MIND A SOFT HEART A SOUND BODY.'' is the motto! stay happy and thanks for the wisdom.
