Let love, not fear, direct your way,
And you will feel the change today.
Seek to know, and not react,
Without regret after the fact.
If all would try to understand
And stop our mouths up with our hands,
Perhaps our ears could then receive
The truth that we could not perceive.
For every word, there is a reason,
So in this rather hostile season,
Seek out what’s in your neighbor’s heart,
For that’s the kindest place to start.
