Something New

A Poem for a new season, by Victoria Lynn Hall

Hating the same things 
will not build lasting unity
Sooner or later it will bring
hate upon you or me

In this garden of weeds
we still reap what we sow
Anger doesn't plant any seeds
Shame doesn't make anything grow

I no longer want to spend energy
on things that are sure to decay
if we could all just train our minds to see
in a more imaginative way

Perhaps we still don't believe
there will be an end to the world we knew
Perhaps because we still see that as something to grieve
and not as a wish come true

Perhaps instead of hating
what we all could agree to do
is fall in love with the thought of creating 
something new

A self taught artist and creative entrepreneur, Victoria Lynn Hall lives in the Kansas City area with 4 spoiled cats. She believes in art and the magic of kindness.
