Carry On Tuesday

Say No to Hate, Yes to Love

*
everyone, everywhere
pointing fingers, cursing names
who did what when where how why
full of hatred, full of blame
I see it in the schoolyard
shopping malls and county seats
he said she said we said they
blah blah blah- it’s grave deceit
each day we have a brand new choice
to live this way or not
after all tomorrow is another day*
it may be all we’ve got
so try, just try this once
compassion, love and grace
in every new endeavor
let’s put a smile on each face
*

Carry on Tuesday prompt this week was to use the famous line (or part of it) from Gone With the Wind in a poem.
