Hot vs Cold,

Left vs Right,

Female vs Male,

North vs South,

Democrat vs Republican,

White vs Black,

Gay vs Straight,

Why do we let these labels define us?

Why can’t we live in peace?

Brother vs brother,

Sister vs Sister,

Caught up in a war, Blinded by the fog. Unable to put differences aside long enough to find their many similarities. They say love and hate are opposites and they could not be more different. But hate and love, they’re not so different in fact they’re very alike, for love and hate are often mixed or hidden in plain sight.

Put your differences aside and make the change yourself. This grouping crap needs to stop.

They’re better than this, You’re better than this, is everything a contestant?

Must there always be an opposite? With every right a wrong?

Mankind’s heart forever poisoned with jealousy, hate, vain and egotistical souls. Unless… We stand hand in hand against our greatest fears, not lurk in the shadows of shame. Help resolve the problem yourself. Don’t coward down in fear waiting for another person to appear.

Be the change you wish to see in the world.
