I once was asked concerning love vs hate,

Why does it seem that hate if so great?

While hate is a very strong emotion too,

Nothing can equal love that is true.

 

The weight of hate is to heavy to bear,

While it seems that love is lighter than air,

Accounts of hate make a big news headline,

While actions of love you must look hard to find.

 

But when you consider that love is patient and kind,

Envied not, not pompous, not puffed up, not rude,

Seeketh not her own, slow to anger, thinks no evil,

Rejoices not in wrong doing, but rejoices in truth,

Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things,

Endures all things, and never fails,

 

You soon learn that the density of love is so much,

Although the scales be heaped with a great volume of hate,

It’s catapulted by a mere measure of love’s touch,

Love strengths the bearer so no one feels not its weight.
