No Room for Hate


I went to a house and walked up to the gate
A man came outside and his name was called Hate
He asked me a question would you like to come in?

    Reminds me of Edgar Allen Poe! chilling! I think its my favorite, even though the topic is dark. In the end, good wins over evil though. What a great writer she is! (Report) Reply

    A great write Patricia with a superb title. Hate is very much out there, sadly it is all that some people know.

    Superbly crafted the verses is just flow like a majestic river, although the subject is not so pleasing, reminds me of the story of Buddha and the mara, he was tormented by all vices of evil but fought back. There are to many boarders who dwell in that cabin. A great job! (Report) Reply

    A lovely imagery through this rhythmic discussion decrying hate. Reminds me of W.Words Worth's The selfish giant..... very nice. (Report) Reply

    This is almost similar to the test of Jesus by Satan! You were prudent enough not to fall into his trap! Actually hate can be conquered only through love and I believe, you have a loving heart! Enjoyed reading it! ! (Report) Reply

    Though the poem is superb and extremely brilliant of its theme, I think hate is there within every man. The difference is, those who show and those who control. Nice write ma'am! (Report) Reply

    Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

    Hate might of found his match and praised the lord for the first time. Fatastic. (Report) Reply

    We tend to hate that which we fear and do not understand.
    Then fear nothing and understand all. Without the barrenness
    of hate can there be the sublimity of love. I enjoyed your
    anecdotal poem, for it is true there will always be another guest. (Report) Reply

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
