(ANNUAL HATE-FREE DAY SONNET)
Love each other, often hard to endorse
So what if we cannot always feel love?
Tolerance is an acceptable course
Distilled from burning passion undreamed of.
See our fellow humans who suffer too
Spreading hatred causes life to be worse
Anger poisons the aethers wafting through
Hovering like an everlasting curse.
We specks of life on each other depend
Yet we form tribes of separate masses
Mistaking charisma as our best friend
Further separating into classes.
Although love is a precious rarity
Honor the emotion with clarity
