A Love To Hate

Is it getting clearer...
For those who fear to be themselves.
They who have entertained disrespect,
To the point where none is left.
Inspected in depth...
Or quests requested!

Blinded they are like fools on crack!
Using tools of fools to keep themselves back.
Blinded they are like fools on crack.
Or a black cat who can't stop giving 'bad' vibes,
An image to attack!
Blinded they are like fools on crack!
Seeking a shoulder to cry on...
And a pat on their backs!
Blinded they are like fools on crack.
Trying in doped slickness,
But losing themselves...
With weakened backbones attacked!

Is it getting clearer...
For those who fear to be themselves.
With a fear that endears them,
With a love to hate!
Berating unappreciated wisdom at stake!

    I personally really liked this one...
    I agree with the other comment that this poem is not entiry or necessarily about crack...
    It sabout the refusal to accept ones identity and seeing the beauty in the individuality of people...
    Very strong...
    Beautiful work...

    Much can be read in this poem. Many, many interpretations - but I do not think it is really about 'crack' - but about fanaticism and refusal to see. - Will
