Let Them Hate


you hate me
you hate them
you hate everyone
and you allow your hate to consume you
misery likes to throw a welcoming party
Only I would reject that invitation
they'll hate you and won't understand why
for their hearts has only become awry
Cold from the reality of being rejected
by that of a broken soceity
that made them lose touch with humanity
No doubt the darkness will manifest itself
in the deeds, doings and dispositions
of the deeply afflicted
and the feeling keeps eating away at you
until it engulfs you completely
i say, 'let them hate'
for this spirit, they will never break
there is a light inside of me
and that light drives out the hate

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
