Sometimes I look at the Internet

And I read comments

And I feel sad

And hopeless

People screaming at each other

Fighting with invisible strangers

Protected by a screen

THEY don’t understand kindness

THEY are so angry

If only THEY would stop and listen

THEY are ruining our world

THEY fire shots with guns and with words

Heedless of THEIR targets

Confident in THEIR worldview

So sad

I feel for THEM

If only I could make THEM understand

And then someone comments

Something I disagree with

And my heart hardens a little more

Words swirl through my head

Razor sharp, sure to cut

My fingers poised to type

And I realize

I am no different

There is no THEM

It’s just US

WE are humanity

ALL of us

And WE are the only ones who can make it better

One kind word at a time

    OMG I LOVE YOU! People have forgotten that we are all human, one race, all searching for love and companionship and acceptance.
