Life is too short to dispute

life is too short to dispute
this is a fact absolute
it is easy to sow hatred and cultivate terror
to spread hatred is an error
an error against humanity
it is a state of insanity
but to spread love
it takes centuries to plough the fields
and sow the seeds
of good deeds
And harvest friendship and brotherhood
Alas! the least it's need is understood
why should we make miserable
the life of others people
Just for the sake of our desire?
It is a hellish fire
it is inhuman act that no one can admire
I wish every mother could sow the seed of love
An attitude high and above
In every child, create some space
Regardless of religion color or race
respect, love and care
equality and treatment fair
there would be no agony, poverty
this is a thought noteworthy
this is my humble aim
beneath our skins we are all same
