Born to Love

As humans, we consider ourselves among the most intelligent species on earth, capable of using our brains for far more than other creatures (so we like to think). Like many other species, we are capable of love, but we are also capable of hate. It makes me wonder if a Labrador retriever would hate a Yorkshire terrier just because they look different and have different color and types of fur.

‘Cause I want to shimmer
I want to shine
I want to radiate
I want to live
I want to love
I want to try and learn how not to hate
Try not to hate

We’re born to shimmer
We’re born to shine
We’re born to radiate
We’re born to live
We’re born for love
We’re born to never hate

He’s born to shimmer
He’s born to shine
He’s born to radiate
He’s born to live
He’s born to love
But we’ll teach him how to hate

– Shimmer, Shawn Mullins
