Turn Your Hate Into Love
written by: Henry Lee Thomas
If the world is treating you rough
and you think you have had enough,
don’t decide to strike back with hate,
turn your hate into love.
Don’t make the mistake
of thinking you will feel better
if you raise hell
or cast a dark spell.
The thing to do
is to use that dark energy
to propel yourself
to a higher plane
to do good deeds
and nourish your brain.
It’s all about how
you decide to respond.
If you respond to the hate with love
you will pull the plug on the haters
and they would lose their power.
