Guest Poet Charles Strickland
LET THE HATE GO
Let the hate go,
All over the land,
Peace can be at hand,
That's all that can stand,
Between you and fellow man.
Hate doesn't hurt your enemies so,
It just eats at your soul,
And brings you below,
So love your fellow man,
And help him when you can.
It will do more good for you,
And neither of you will be blue.
