Goodness!

This world has so much hate, but I don’t have to.

Airwaves generate so much fear, but I don’t have to.

Hate breeds; fear takes seed.

Animals follow instincts.

Humans make choices.

Instincts are easy.

Sheep know this;

to break free is not easy,

not always easy.

Sheep fight back but not by will,

by instinct.

We beings fight back by will,

break free by will.

By choice, we break free.

This world has so much hate,

but I don’t have to.

Satellites spew too much fear,

but I don’t have to.

Goodness breeds.

Courage takes seed;  goodness breeds.

Courage takes; goodness breeds.

Courage;  goodness breeds.

Goodness!
