LOVE AND HATE


One moment you are happy
One moment you are sad
One moment you want the person
In another, enough of him you had.

When you love a person,
You seem to be in a paradise
But the moment she hurts you,
You began to despise.

Love is such a fragile thing
That doesn't teach the difference
Between love and hate
For one moment you love that person
And in another you hate
And you don't really know,
In love, what is going to be your fate.

I ask you, O almighty,
If you created love why did you create hate
For if love is great,
Then why this hate...

With a grin you may answer
Dear child! The wall between hate and love is thin;
Then I ask you, why most people fail to see the wall
Learn to hate and commit the biggest sin...

O Lord! I ask thee to be merciful
And teach these mortals
The difference between love and hate
For on it
Depends a million fate.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
