Love or Hate You Choose

Love or Hate You Choose
Sydney Blake
Boothbay Harbor

Mindlessly scrolling through hundreds of posts

Some engage me

I see words of love and peace

with images that reflect these

But as I get deeper into the feed

there are words that haunt me

I wish they would die, I read

I hope they have a long and painful death, the writer proceeds

As I continue to read multiple posts

my heart begins to bleed

For the same people who preach love and peace

are sharing, liking, posting these

All people have feelings and personal struggles

I ask you to not be two-sided or ignorant

For it only brings down others

No more back and forth you must now decide

Love or Hate choose your side
