Isn’t there hate enough?

I hear your words that hurt,
You hold no care.
I see your actions to pain,
You act with no care.

Isn’t there hate enough?
Isn’t life painful enough?
Do you add to it?
Do you care?

You, start caring,
Put off your words of hate.
Put off your actions to pain.
You start first, stop the hate.
