I Hate


I hate you cause you're white,
I hate you cause you're black.
I hate you out of spite,
My hate takes you aback.

I hate you cause you're straight,
I hate you cause you're gay.
I'll hate till I'm irate,
My hate is here to stay.

I hate you cause you're male,
I hate you cause you're female.
All these reasons I hate,
For I will discriminate.

I'm not the only person who hates,
By race, sexuality or gender.
I'm not the only one who discriminates,
I'm not the only offender.

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
