    Yeah, and then? Is there something I am missing. Poem should be called Truism. I intend to examine your listing to see whether you go on sometimes to inspire, recollect, uplift, crack a joke, bring honour to God, or to loved one, or to nature…Wayne Blair

    Wow, what a powerful and inspiring poem! The simple yet profound message of "Love to Love" and "Hate to Hate" really resonates with me. And the reminder that our actions and emotions have a ripple effect on those around us is so important. "Hurt people, Hurt People" and "Loved People, Love People" are such profound and true statements. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece of writing!

    Poignancy via brevity. Profound. Two thumbs up.
