The Hate That I Hate


I hate the hate that resides in me now

I hate the hate that is so heavy it weighs me down
I hate the hate that keeps my emotions tightly wound

I hate the hate that charges my wall
I hate the hate that lies to strengthen my fall

I hate the hate that has me in chains
I hate the hate that courses through my veins

I hate the hate that is a shadow at my side
I hate the hate that has stolen my mind

I hate the hate that blinds me from the stars
I hate the hate that has created my war

I hate the hate that has stolen my grace

My scarlet letter written all over my face

    Love and accolades have come before me. Really? This lurching, unrhythmic, cheap collection of rhymes is not a poem. I nearly strangled reading it aloud. I wonder: did the previous commenters let themselves *hear* this piece so bad it could not even be given the commendation of being called doggerel. How in God's name is this on a best-of list? Shameful. Go back to those pencil sketches you probably think are art also, Adalie. (God, I hope you don't think you write poetry.) Boo-Hisss! ! ! (Report) Reply
