The world can be harsh and mean. People, even close ones, do hurtful things to you. Your heart shrivels under the onslaught. All people are hateful.
Friendship still stalks the land.
Look at these happy children holding hands as a new day dawns*
Pour this picture onto your heart and feel it grow once more.
* = I assumed the Sun is in the East in this picture. If, however, it is setting in the West, then the children are happy because the day has gone well.
