Love Lives, Hate Kills

Human temperament is similar to an ocean

Tranquil like tree leaves on a windless DAY

Or turbulent like an ocean in a raging storm

Controlling emotions reaps peace of mind

Emotions uncontrolled produces much DISMAY.

What lies ahead no one on earth can say

But we do know love is better than HATE

It's up to us if civilization will survive

Will it sink like ships in a violent storm

Or will love prevail before it's too LATE?

Love lives, hate kills....
