The Choice of Love (a poem)

Love draws us near;
 fear drives us away.
Love compels response;
 fear demands reaction.
Love unites;
 fear divides.
Love sees humanity;
 fear despises others.
Love is selfless;
 fear is selfish.
Love leads to life;
 fear brings death.
Love advocates;
 fear antagonizes.
Love acts;
 fear waits.
Love seeks unity;
 fear breeds division.
Love drives out fear.
