[30] The Divide

[30]

Why can’t you listen?

Are you afraid
To think about
The beliefs you hold
Because you doubt
Your beliefs will hold?

Why can’t you hear anything else?
Why can’t you think about this?

Do you have to see
Those whom with you disagree
As something less than you?
As something completely inhuman?

Why can’t you see them as people?
Why can’t you accept who they are?
Why can’t you change your mind?

The divide is tearing us apart!
Every person has a heart,
But you won’t let them be a part!

Why can’t you let them be?
Why can’t you try to see?
Why can’t you give it a chance?
Why can’t you ponder your stance?

If you want them to understand us,
Why are you pushing them away?

Why can’t you have them stay?
Why can’t you stand them at all?
Why can’t you be tolerant like you say?
Why can’t you show them your love?
Why can’t you let them listen?

Is love driven by hate really love?
