Refuse It Breath

Depravity exists in humanity.

Cruelty lives.

Hate grows.

But for each horribleness that is born and inflicted

I believe there is a multiplicity of virtuous acts

Love deeds

Kind outreach

Compassion and comfort extended.

For every attempt to make hate grow,

Good people refuse to allow it breath.

 And though it tries and tries to rise out of ugliness

It is put down repeatedly with benevolence.

And the superiority of love.
