Hatred - Poem by chandra thiagarajan

Hatred is a disgusting and hideous emotion
Which entails grudge and detestation
Hatred is the curse of our life
For it is the fount of strife in life
Hatred destroys our soul
And wrecks havoc whole.

Hatred is a dislike extreme
Directed against ideas or a team
Of persons or individuals or objects
Or feelings of loathing against sects
Hatred which is deep and enduring
Is believed to be long lasting.

Psychologists consider it as a disposition
More than a temporary state of abomination
Hatred is an attitude of prejudiced hostility
And an intense feeling expressing animosity
Hatred makes us die every moment
And destroys our soul brilliant.

From the inner recesses of the mind
We should eradicate hatred and be kind
Uncontrollable mind leads to hatred
We should control and instill love instead
Love caters to our soul enlivening
And makes our lives valuable with forgiving.

    Hatred is the very distinct opposite of love. It destroys families, friends, communities and nations.

    Hatred is a.mold that grows in damp dark recesses of the mind.
    It cannot survive in light therefore it must keep a hidden agenda
    controled in such as to prevent any free thought. (Report) Reply
