That dilemma we all face, when someone acts cruelly or unjustly toward us; shall I act out of hatred or out of love?

Finding That TRUTH We're All Made Of
By, Geoffrey Marshall Regent
You're saying, you are overcome with Hate?
Well now, I most certainly, can relate!
Yet I ask, is it wise, to tempt your fate,
By these atrocities, you advocate?
Doing to others, the harm done to you?
Might feel inside, like it's, the thing to do!
And there are those, who'll say, It Is, it's true!
But down that road, is darkest darkness, too!
Seek instead, the tiniest thread of Love?
But does it fit yet? ...Like a perfect glove!
It's not weakness, asking help from Above;
No it's, finding that TRUTH we're all made Of!

This made me think of a book I'm currently reading about dealing with anger, and the chapter I've just read was about how feelings of anger and hate when someone has wronged us are justified, but we need to consider how we act afterwards. Anyway, I really enjoyed your poem, it was very thoughtful and brought up an important topic about how we respond to others. I noticed you tend to use a lot of commas, and it's not always necessary. I'm terrible at overusing commas, but I found the thing that works for me is that I read it out loud, and if I pause then I put in a comma, and if I don't then I don't add one. Aside from that the flow was really, you've got a good rhyme scheme going that moves it along nicely.

Thanks for the review... I'm pleased to hear it touched something for you. I also appreciate the comma comment. I have to confess, I do that intentionally. Mostly because I don't always trust that the flow I intend, is going to be heard without a visual cue. I'm probably wrong about this, at least with good readers. But, I just don't trust the education system these days.
