Poetry 172: One or the Other

Two types of people exist in this world

Those who exist to spread love
and
Those who exist to spread hate

Those who exist to spread beauty
and
Those who exist to make things ugly

Those who exist to give hugs
and
Those who exist to inflict pain

Those who exist to build
and
Those who exist to destroy

Those who exist to bring joy
and
Those who exist to bring sadness

Those who exist to give hope
and
Those who exist to crush that hope

That’s the reality
Of our complex society
But as humans with thoughts
And minds of our own
We can choose which existence
We ought to live each day
It’s very simple really
If you want to be
On the right side of history…

-AAS
