Black Heart
Copyright © Lee L. Halvorsen, 1991



Some say the night is black, and I also must agree.
But there is a darkness blacker than the night will ever be.
Very few are willing to admit that this fact is really true;
The fact that a human heart can be blacker than the color we knew.

People fear what they do not know and cannot understand.
People fear what they cannot control and feel with their own hands.
Fear alone is not the thing we really need to fear.
It's the hate that it ignites that causes the real scare.

Do you judge with an open mind, or a heart that's blacker than night.
Just because a few others agree with you doesn't mean you're right.
Never hurt someone else just because they're different from you.
Remember, you're as different to them, and that they have a heart, too.
