Why Can Humans Not Get Along With One Another?

It seems to be impossible for us to live amicably with each other  
The chief reason is that we do not have love in our hearts  
Most people only think about themselves and their families  
There really is no fellow feeling among mankind  
Selfishness and haughtiness pervade the whole world  
Adults display a me-first attitude, likewise children  
Everybody tries to outwit and outdo others to become the best  

Humans have neither patience nor understanding  
A lack of the ability to reason leads to strife and contestation  
We are intolerant of the idiosyncrasies of others  
The ones with privilege oppress and dominate the lower classes  
Peace and unity cannot exist where there is injustice  
Men hate and kill one another because of politics and racism  
Discord and hostility between nations continue to arise  

Few people care about kindness and brotherly love  
We become enemies because we differ with each other on issues  
Varied religious beliefs cause a division in every society  
Sad to say, friendship is contingent on agreement  
A social relation that is built on hypocrisy cannot stand  
We do to others the things we do not want them to do to us  
Some persons are to arrogant to treat others as equals  
Will humans ever be able to love one another with sincerity?
