Treasure Island

Katherine Sessor

(March 14,1990 / Virginia)

Hate Me...

Hate me for I’m weak
Can’t save myself, but other’s I try
Words of light to them I do speak
Thinking of me, I have no right to cry

Hate me for I’m a fool
Believing and committing stupid acts
Even breaking my own self rules
I don’t deserve a pat on the back

Hate me for I’m a failure
Despite my tries, I can’t succeed
Even when I’m positive and being sure,
I should be ashamed for the help I need

Hate me for I’m selfish
Wanting others to always rescue me
Even though happiness for them I wish
I shouldn’t ask them to set me free

Hate me for I’m a coward
Afraid to stand and speak my voice
Although I want to feel powered
I have no right to have that choice

Hate me for I’m a disgrace
Pathetic compared to other girls
Thriving for your happiness and praise
I don’t deserve to be in your world

Hate me for I’m naïve
Dreaming of fairytales and sunshine
Even though I truly want to believe
I should know better to waste other’s time

Hate me for I’m worthless
A being who wishes troubles away
Wanting to not be helpless
I shouldn’t act this way

Go ahead and hate me please
For I deserve it all
I already hate that I can’t be
Perfect for you, instead I fall

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
