Holding on to My Faith in Humankind: Weekend Writing Prompt

Some may call me obdurate in my belief

That babies everywhere aren’t born full of hate.

Someone has to teach those little ones to loathe others

For racism and other isms to carry a lot of weight.

I love to see the toddlers laughing and hugging,

Not mindful of any kind of differences there.

So I am persuaded that we can just as surely

Teach our children to love others and care.

Written for the Weekend Writing Prompt #161 from Sammiscribbles: obdurate in 72 words exactly.
