Raising Children Without Hatred


Stimulating thought, urging me to write incessantly, letting
ideas accumulate and become inviting.

Seeing the travesties of this world still taking place, some
from the dark ages.

Wondering why we have progressed so much in technology, and
yet can't get along with one another.

What is the missing equation in this mathematical problem,
why can't we solve it?

Knowing that every individual has talents unique to themselves,
yet not everyone uses them or doesn't use them intelligently.

Hatred of another is so commonplace even now, why can't people
overlook color of skin and poverty of others?

Everyone is still human, there must be a common denominator to
be focused on, disrupting the angry thoughts of hatred.

Raising children properly without teaching them to dislike
others just because they are different is a beginning step.

Yet, those who hate, continue it's source by teaching their
children what they themselves have learned from their parents.

Why not decide, make a choice in their lives to get rid of it
and begin to tolerate others by getting to know them better.

Allowing everyone to live side by side, sharing their lives
without any peculiarities of discrimination?

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
