Hatrate


I hate you for doing this to me
I hate you for hurting me
I hate you
But I don't want to
I hate myself
I don't know why
I hate this world
it so cruel
I hate the person I am or was
I hate the things I have done
I hate my past
I hate the fact that I did good
I hate you for not believing in me
I hate you for judging me
I hate myself for not believing in myself
For putting myself down for underestimating my power
I hate the fact that I'm gifted
I hate being good sometimes
Cause I feel like I'm wasting my time
But wait!
Why must I hate?
I don't want to hate
I want to forgive and forget
It takes a 24-7 slave to hate
And I can't do that
It's just a burden not worthy of carrying
