Poetry: “Immune to hate”

Written a few hours after the attack in central Stockholm, two weeks ago, based on my immediate feelings.

***~***~***~***

Immune to hate

Fear that feeds on spreading chaos
Conflicting stories
Huddled masses
News relayed by word of mouth
Side-eyes gazing
At your neighbor
Reading other’s lit up screens
Opinions shared
Thus seeking comfort
See what normal still remains
Fearing more
The fear of fearing
Feeding into ignorance
Ignorance
That breeds the hatred
Hatred causing awful deeds
Then at the end
What I am left with
This one terrifying thing
To realize
In all this madness
We were not immune to hate
