p style=”text-align:center;”>Love Life; hate Darkness!
Love is light; hate is darkness.
Walking in love is light; walking in hate is
Walking in love is walking in light; walking in hate is walking in darkness.
Loving gives light; hating gives darkness.
Love makes you see; hate makes you blind
Love gives you enough light to see the best in your brother; hate gives you enough darkness not to see the good in your brother.
When you see, you do not stumble; when you are blind you stumble.
The Mutant sees because he has light; the world do not see because they have darkness.
Mutants are lights because they see and give sight; the world is dark because they do not see, and do give blindness.
Love is Life; hate is death
The Mutant is alive; the world is dead.
Love to live; hate to die
The Mutant loves because they are alive; the world hates they are dead.
To love is to live; to hate is to die
Lovers are living men; haters are dead men
Love is the Great Enlightenment; hate is the great darkness.
The Mutant lives in the Age of
Enlightenment; the world lives in the Dark Age.
Love the Light; hate the dark.
To love is to know; to hate, is to not know.
To love is to know God; to hate is to not know God.
Knowledge is the Love maturity, this is the Christian maturity, and this is also the very core of God, the Bible and who He is.
For me, enlightenment is when you know
Enough to put your life in the line for another
Without them even knowing it, let alone
Reciprocating the gesture- this is not rocket science, is it?
p style=”text-align:center;”>On the other hand, when the
Best you know is how best to have your way
And feel important without anyone (including
Yourself) ever knowing it, let alone
Reciprocating the “kind” gesture, then you are
In the Dark Age- sorry.

I want to believe that I didn’t write this piece. I decided to do a review on it. I don’t know how many of us noticed it or were as perplexed by it as I was when I did see it. Oh well.
The mere contradiction of this piece’s pieces is a good lesson in the law of excluded middle. Jesus can’t be said to hate the darkness, and be light all at once, since ‘Hate is Darkness’. Please, as Poets, Songwriters, Novelist, Scriptwriters… lets be as Theo-politically or theologically correct as possible. Poetry is not some meager field for making the barest shard of reason. There are thousands of Christian
Poets out there and when one of us dishes out slurp, it is easy to believe there is no reverberation. But we do this for eternity, we do this for souls, we do this for Truth…so let’s watch it.
Jesus is not Deos Obscurus, he is the revelation of God. There’s a lot that I can tell you about the Darkness, but isn’t it better I tell you of the light? Language is like a river, and our arts are boats of different kinds. The people who have boarded your piece expect to be taken to somewhere meaningful; please don’t drown them in cognitionlessness.
And don’t call yourself a mutant. You are a new creation.
