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

    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

    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
