Fear and hatred

FullSizeRender (6)I see the world change around me

An atmosphere of fear surrounds me

Fear- naked, primeval, intense

Dousing the last embers of pretense-

The pretense of equality among men

The hollow claim of love among brethren

Fear borne out of deep-seated mistrust

Simmering hatred that in a flash can burst

Releasing a lava of loathing profound

Singeing humanity, spreading evil around

Where men kill each other for minimal gain

Miserable themselves, on others they inflict pain

In an atmosphere so sharply polarized

How do we raise children unprejudiced?

They are forced to inherit hatred and fear

They grow up surrounded by mistrust severe

If not for us, maybe for future generations

We need to dispel such fear and apprehensions...
