Here is a match to put out that fire you started

It seems

these days

that

anger 

is all the rage

quick

come here

let me whisper something

mean

and

hurtful

about that

person

over there

I am

so much better

than them

blah blah

blah hate

blah blah

blah anger….

blah blah

blah

 

Slow down

give them

the benefit of a doubt

maybe

just

maybe

you do not know

the whole story

 

Can you fight fire

with fire?

 

Can you stop

a flood with more water?

 

Can you stand up

and demand

kindness?

 

How much

longer

will we all

sit by

and let the

angry

win?

  1. You can totally stop a flood with more water! Remember those tubular barriers they put up all around downtown when the Mississippi flooded? Those were filled with WATER!

    I am quite deliberately missing the point.
