Breed Love

Be kind to everyone you meet, darling, and,

Clear your dishes from the table when you’re finished eating, dear, and,

Bridge the gap between others’ despair and the disparity and bear the brunt,

With your body.

Hold tight now.

Stifle the scream.

Wait for others to finish speaking, honey, and,

Try to walk a mile in everyone’s shoes, sweet pea, and,

When he degrades your effort and then replaces your face,

Bridge the gap between his despair and the disparity and bear the brunt,

With your body.

Hold tight.

Stifle the scream.

Family first, babygirl, and

Believe in your ability, sugar, and,

Reflect on the sins you will soon commit,

Give up a smile to the un-given,

Love so wholey you grow ulcers from the flames your heart ignites!

Tear it out.

Stifle the scream.
