While others lie drowning in a sea of hate
You must strive to rise above;
Don’t join the fray; don’t take the bait;
Respond, instead, with love.
It’s tempting to fight fire with fire,
But that only adds fuel to the heat;
When they sink low you must climb higher
Where disdain cannot compete.
Insults lobbied from differing views
Hardly constitutes a debate;
Loss of decorum and chaos ensues
When motivated only by hate.
