Hatred - Poem by Sylvia Thomas

It's not just the result,
of the greed of humans.
It's not just the pain,
caused by the suffering.

It's not just the reason
that causes all tears.
It's so much much more
that just that.

It's because humans are weak,
against all emotions.
It's because humans wish to love,
that causes them to hate.

It's because we have a heart,
that's why we want to kill.
It's because we want to have all,
that's why we want to destroy.

It's the pain of the soul,
the tears of the hand,
the weakness of the heart,
It the sorrow of it all.

It's the weapon of calamity,
the remains of the ruined,
the breath of the dead,
the silence that kills.

It's the hatred that we humans feel.
