People will speak hate.
If you can,
Try to find the fear they speak from.
Address that fear.
Facing hate with poise and composure is a skill that not many possess.
I will do my best to model for you,
But I will make mistakes.
I am weak.
I will speak in anger,
I will speak frustration,
I will speak with ignorance,
And I will speak from fear.
I find it possible to forgive other people’s faults
Because I recognize myself in their fallibilities.
