What burns my skin...

“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.” ~Ghandi

We must stop the rhetoric.
The hate-speak.
And the posturing.

We are blinded by our hate.
By the monster it turns us into.
By the hideous words we spew.
Those of us, who live day by day.
Side by side.

We hate those in power.
We rage and spit fire while the innocent get blamed. 
It's a war that sets me on fire.
My heart. My mind.

I am not blind,
yet I want to turn off the world
so I can breathe again.
And not feel the hate that burns my skin
