No One Is Born To Hate

No child
Is born to hate
No child
On there own

Cares about
The color
Of the skin
Of their new
Or about
To which god

That playmates
Family does pray
Or about

What country
From which
That playmate came
No child
Is born
Caring about
Any of that
All the child sees
Is a new friend
Nothing more

Nothing less
And the only
Time that changes
Is when they see
An adult caring
About it
They learn hate
By seeing the hate
Their parents show
And it shouldn't
Be that way
Be careful
What you
Teach your kids
Because no child
Should ever
Be taught to hate
Just because
You can't seem
To know better
