ANOTHER PANDEMIC

There is another pandemic raging across the land…

one…to which we all are prone.

It’s called hatred and it has but one symptom…to turn our hearts to stone.

 

Hatred is contagious…and once it has attacked

despite our best defenses…it’s hard not to hate back.

 

The moment you come down with it…when you feel it begin…

It becomes harder and harder to fight it…and easier to give in.

 

Our hearts begin to freeze up…our minds become constricted

what makes this even sadder is…this disease is self-inflicted.

 

There is no vaccine we can take……no pill…no miracle injection…

But there is a way, if we are willing, to extinguish this infection 

 

It will not be easy and recovery will take time

It will mean all of us who hate…must be willing to make the climb…

 

To climb out of the hole we’ve dug ourselves with hate…

To find a way instead of carrying hate…to drop it

because hate can only hold power over us

when we refuse to stop it!

 

It will mean everyone…

everyone…

everyone…

everyone with no objections

must replace the hate that’s in their hearts

with forgiveness, 

with acceptance…

with love and 

with affection.

 

I have this on good authority…

all the Gods and experts concur…

When faced with a pandemic of hatred sweeping the land…

Love is the only cure.
