The Poet’s Corner – “Love begets love.” by John Yurgens

Love begets love. 

Again, the world weeps

at the senseless loss of more innocent worshipers

Muslim

Jew

or Christian.

Praying to Allah, Jehovah, or God.

Why, does hate reign so strong

Such violence

Senseless and shameful…

I fear my reaction

my desire to curse those haters

the anger and frustration I feel

must be controlled

I must swallow my anger

Be diligent to stave off the feelings of hatred

If I succumb to hatred, the haters win.

hatred begets hatred

therefore, I must not react with hatred in my heart

I offer the haters an olive branch

Of peace and love

I pray for grace, to forgive them for their hatred

After all, Love begets love.

The more love we share, the more hatred and darkness we can eliminate

Every Random Act of Kindness brings more love and light to the world

I choose to share happiness, joy and love with the world

Doing my part to make the world a better place, one person at a time
