Poetry

Four-letter words

Hate
a four-letter word
powerful, painful
it only breeds hurt

Love
a four-letter word
powerful, painful
well-worth any hurt

Numb
a four-letter word
disconnected, distant
it masks the hurt

Kind
a four-letter word
understated, underrated
helps heal the hurt

Today is World Poetry Day. It’s also the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination; let’s try and end the hate and treat each other with kindness. This poem is different from my usual ones and I guess I’m experimenting in a way. Constructive feedback is more than welcome! Also, it feels really good to be writing again 🙂
