I See nations showing hate.
 
What if you as an individual,
 
yes you reading this,
 
you that’s hating other nations,
 
you not reading this,
 
anticipating in in murder of people with other identifications.
 
What if you were placed in their shoes?
 
I’m talking about those nations that you’ve been hating.
 
What if your soul were place inside one of their bodies instead.
 
What if you weren’t born in a Church but rather in a Mosque?
 
What if you we born in a Synagogue instead of a Hof?
 
Will you then kill yourself too?
 
Will you then hate yourself?
 
Will you be the same person as you are now?
 
Tell me, would you?
 
What is the difference?
 
Are we dying differently?
 
Do we not fight the same struggles each day?
 
Are we not one human race?
 
There is no species involved here!!
 
At the end of the day, we are all the same whether you like it or not!

(2015)

Hate never solved any problem, if you are waiting for it to solve anything you will wait until you too die!

I agree 150%. I wrote something like this yesterday called "War?" All this hated was predicted in the bible. That was a great analogy of hated.
