This is my poem about the community that Romeo and Juliet had to face when they wanted to be with each other. The main theme of this poem is when it’s two communities fighting against each other no one can win.

Hate VS Hate

 

Antipathy

Hatred

Hostility

Resentment

For what?

Why?

Even when it’s leading people to die.

Communities at odds

Making people pray to the gods

That they won’t end up in pain.

Everybody knows you can’t put out fire with fire

Yet, people try to.

There will never be victory when it’s

Hate VS hate.

There will just be punishment

That no one ever meant.

This hatred will rip away from you

Peace

Love

Family

And bring

Violence

Death

Sadness

Tears

Pain

Sacrifice

For what?

Why?

Because two communities can’t learn how to pacify?

Peace and love is a gate

To stop this hate.

Hate VS Hate

A lot of communities can relate.

We all have this trait.

It almost never goes away

Like a scar from some jaguar.

Hate VS Hate

We need to motivate people

To stop this resentment.

So love can be present.

Hate

Lets not let it devastate

Us!

    Dear Jessica,
    I loved reading your poem! I liked the rhymes you put in, and about how you said that you“can’t put out fire with fire”; It’s great! I mainly loved when you said,
    “For what?
    Why?
    Because two communities can’t learn how to pacify?
    Peace and love is a gate
    To stop this hate.
    Hate VS Hate
    A lot of communities can relate.
    We all have this trait.
    It almost never goes away
    Like a scar from some jaguar.
    Hate VS Hate”
    Thank you for posting your poem; Keep on writing!
    Sincerely,
    Kassandra

    Dear Jessica
    Thank you so much for sharing your poetry. A line that stood out to me was “We need to motivate people To stop this resentment. So love can be present.” because I agree with what you are trying to say. A connection I made to your poem is that the world has a lot of hate right now which is not good. Thank you so much for writing and I look forward to reading your next post.
    -Asa
