Hate Came With A Permit

Hate traveled on four wheels,
Illuminated the night,
And came with a permit
Two by two
Hate came to unite
The night 
By the light 
The bright white light 
From every torch in sight
Hate faced the resistance 
In the darkness 
But hate's light 
Could not outshine 
"This little light of mine"
Hate could not outshine 
Tyler's hugs
Hate could not outshine 
Heather's smile 
Hate could not outshine 
Jay and Berke in flight 
Hate came without "stability and competence"
And the resistance came without a permit

Nice write Michael. Yes indeed, hate should be overcome by any means possible.
