Peace begins with empathy. Empathy transcends logical, because it is not about agreement. It's about understanding from a higher perspective. Empathy is about self love, because it unleashes you from the bondage of anger and hate.

Before you give into your anger,
before you’re quick to react
ask yourself if it's worth the energy you spent
on words you can’t take back.
For too long, we were taught that being strong
meant having the upper hand,
that winning a battle was more important than forgiving.
Before you decide to demonize the enemy,
realize there’s two sides to every story, 
and that peace begins with empathy.
Have compassion for the soul thats at war with their thoughts,
who’s caught up in maintaining a role they play,
to protect themselves from hurting again.
Please don’t misunderstand what I’m saying
it’s ok to walk away without second chances for them to do the same 
but when we choose to understand instead of pointing blame,
when we choose love over hate,
the anger dissipates.
And you the power is in your hands.
