I Hate People...... [humor? (I hope so): some personal thoughts]


Don’t YOU just hate some people? Wouldn’t you like them gone?
Some human-types I do despise, though some people over them do fawn.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

mostly this is true...the envy parts. i hope 'contrary' can mean 'difficult to deal with'; that's what i mean. fawn is NOT the animal. and i usually walk rather than drive.

    You don't let your humor take control of this poem. The ending is a rather sober and completely honest assessment of your impulses. All of the examples you give I find grating too, but usually don't pay enough attention to my feelings, just brush them aside. To recognize the prevalence of ENVY in our being is an important piece of self-knowledge. I applaud you for seeing it so clearly. I hope I can be as candid to myself regarding my negative motives.

    True... we hate some.. we want to eliminate some and we want to live in a world devoid of them.
    But the cops are there and the judiciary is very much there..
    Thanks a lot for writing a unique poem. (Report) Reply

    A good poem with good humour. Good that you brought out the difference in being hateful and envious.
    Yes, 'contrary' perfectly describes the wives, difficult to deal with.
    And yes, fawn is flattery and not the animal, however dear!
    Thanks for the note, it does its part. (Report) Reply

    I looked upon a ring...and i looked at precious gem, it was surrounded by only a steel..only a steel...i wont say the steel steal the preciousness of the ring...it just a steel and it never be a gold by burning it...what i can see is it keep the gem at the center...tight...if people you dislike be in front of you...find at least something you like even it a little...when we so angry we ignored if they ever precious inside...if it difficult to deal with, dont deal at all..as hate will never dissolve in peace but always make you feel bad only...try to accept though it hard to not reject_Soul (Report) Reply

    Greatness without humbleness is something I despise.
    Over many ordinary lives did the great ones climb and rise.
    When they turn to sneer at all the lower folk.
    Is when I want to wrap my fingers around their throat.
    But when I look back they set a standard to which I am reaching for.
    Their arrogance is my drivng force for a perfect score. (Report) Reply

Of peace on earth, good will to men.
