Hate...Will Cause Loss - Poem by Lyn Paul

Should we hate for what we have lost
Hate for those who have taken what is not theirs
Hate is pain
Hate is evil
Hate will cause loss
Not gain
Can we let the anger build
The pain, the anger
Can it be healed
Hate is that word we are not proud to use
Hate is what we do not choose
Yet hate can grow when you have been burnt
Everything has been taken all that you have earnt
All you can do is hope they see light
See what has been done and make it right
Yet the hate can spread for what has been taken
They do not see, there is no waking
The power, the glory is only their gain
Hate can build and you are out in the rain
It is so hard not to hate and all you can do is blame
It all has failed, it is no game
The hate the hurt, will it repair
Or are you, living on a prayer
So the hate, the loss will it fall
Or will it climb the barriers, will it make it's own wall
Your anger will just grow if you let the hate grow
You have to just accept and rebuild a new tomorrow

    Beautiful writing, you're are a humanist Lyn. The divinely ordained duty of human heart is to love, but somehow man has continued to burden his heart with hatred... Thanks for this wonderful poem and do remain blessed. (Report) Reply

    Hatred leads to anger and similar negative emotions and is more like an acid that corrodes the container in which it is kept! Love is the antidote to hatred! Great message, Lyn! (Report) Reply

    Excellent words (advice) given here, as hate will destroy you from the inside out. As wronged and
    as hurt that we may be, only time seems to soften the pain for me. But to know that there has been
    another lesson learnt, helps us to avoid once again getting burnt....If we have gained wisdom.
    Thank you Lyn, for writing this great poem of another learned lesson in life.

    Very Positive poem...Very true said...Hate will cause only loss. Yes, one have to overcome hate, sometimes they are very tough to overcome. But for bringing peace to self, one has to accept and make efforts to rebuild a new tomorrow.
    Superb write. Loved reading it.

    hatred breeds hatred, leads to a blind alley, and self-damage is the only tangible gain.
    brought it out superbly, Lyn.
