Mutual Respect!

Confusion surrounded her why were they arguing

friends that were so close split

finding no common ground where once so close

families from all nations

religion no barrier to coalition and mutual respect

where everybody could interject!

 

She had grown up here feeling safe a community

with here brothers with no unrest

until a year passed the mood had rapidly changed

mistrust and drugs use expanded

population grew a dived between groups emerged

noticeably the unrest and violence surged!

 

Battles in the once quiet streets became established

that the freedom to go anywhere

had gone what she had known was now a memory

the young were drawn into crime

once could go anywhere now no go zones created

a growing anger and hatred!

 

Murders of so much of the youth minds corrupted

it was as though a hidden agenda

being implicated to take away that peace and unity

where the community joined together

money ruled the poor are treated as a sub-culture

the rich peering upon us like a preying vulture!

 

But the tide was beginning to turn as they realised

it was amongst themselves

not the wealthy that assumed knew how they felt

could bring back the respect

lacking in a society that was aligned for the greedy

and not for the majority of needy!

 

Yet the war goes on as the gap surely forever spreads

those unseen continue to treat us like plebs!

Jealousy!

Their relationship had been torn apart

by his growing jealousy

certain his childhood sweetheart shared

her love with another male

once the thoughts were embedded within

a brooding hate did begin!

 

Always that chance of a love turning sour

when two humans matched

trust can be a hard emotion to control

if their connection is frail

misunderstanding is a dangerous mood

where thoughts become crude!

 

From the passions of a close tender embrace

to the loathing of that person

where instead of wanting to love and protect

the wish is only for harm

as often those closest are the most feared

if  loving feelings disappeared!

 

This couple split with a misconstrued jealousy

the boyfriend assaulted a friend

accusing him of sleeping with his girlfriend

terminating in a jail sentence

ending his long relationship with his soul mate

realising the mistake too late!

 

There is only a silk thread between love and hate!

just one more human trait!
