Retrospection Lesson 6: Hatred



Animosity fills this nation
And it's countered with overdue hatred
We all need to break this cycle with solution through positive confrontation
Not feed into the cycle's continuation
Whether that be skin color, racism
Or your being's gender, sexism
We need to get rid of this judgement with emotionalism
Have a heart to kill the hatred
