Poem #1701

This Isn’t the Way

We know how to be kind,
Yet the majority pay it no mind,
It’s no harder to be kind than mean,
Be it in person or behind a screen,
There’s so much them versus us,
We’ve forgotten how to discuss,
Love thy neighbor is now hate,
Ill will is almost a mandate,
Has humanity lost its heart?
So many forces pull us apart,
Society is in a state of decay,
But it need not be that way,
Anger and hate have a steep price,
So why can’t we all just be nice?
