The Worst of Me

By John Northcutt Young

The Worst of Me

I’ll rather

Not see

Hate shown.

I’ll rather

Not hear

Lies told.

When I

Do either

I’ll rather

Not be me.

  1. Instead of pointing the finger at others who hate and lie, this author points to himself. He sees that stopping hatred and stopping lies begins with “me.” Me making right choices and Me fighting my own temptations to hate and to deceive. Me deciding that the thing to hate is that thing in me which hates. Very nice, Mr. Young.
