Actions Teach More Than Words

No one is born
To hate
Or to live
In anger
And fear
Of things
They do not
No those things
Are taught
And what
Makes me sad
Is how often
They are taught
Instead of acceptance

And understanding
Hate begets hate
And children learn
From what they see
Even if you tell them
To be tolerant
Of others
If your own
Actions say otherwise
Yeah, guess what they learn
And guess what
You can blame tv
Or music
All you want
But the fault
Is yours
Bottom line
Be careful
How you act
Around your children
Because even
If you try to
Teach them
To know better
If your actions
Don't reflect that
Yeah guess what
