Every day, it’s spread about with sneers and ugly comments.
Opinions shared by some but ultimately the world could do without.
You recognize that ugly mess in others, but not yourself.
It’s hard to see at first.
This cycle of fear, disdain, hate, destruction…fear.
A habit, a loosing of animosity that feels like it would cut the building ire, but only creates more.
Eventually the evidence will show; a scowl carved deep in your reflection.
Hard to imagine you ever smiled and you can’t recall when last you did.
Misery breeds fast and strong from the environment your mind’s provided
Just like loathing requires construction, so does love and friendship.
Build now while you’ve got life for it, the layers of hostility will crumble away.
Speak with empathy and kindness.
Make this the day.
