What Do You Do With Hate?

Prune it back to its bare branches of fear?
Graft something like courage, such an old fashioned word, into the very heart of that old tree?
Could even one green tendril of hope
come from such an endeavor? If you watered it with compassion, if you fertilized it with understanding?
I am willing to get my hands dirty trying. — Annette Marie Smith
