What a cruel world this can be-

We murder each other

there’s no need for guns.

Our words are all it takes

to spew the hatred in our hearts.

Do we realize that in God’s eyes

hate is murder?

Our hearts can be fire and even ice.

One moment spewing vicious words like lava

and the next moment using silence –

being cold as ice

and pushing people away.

How cruel we are in the world today.
