To Love And To Hate

A poem

There are certain things that we’re born with,
blue or brown or green eyes,
black or blonde or brown or red hair,
a natural talent for athletics,
an ear for making music.

A predisposition to vegetables,
a family history of alcohol,
a desire to paint,
or write,
or teach,
or heal.
