I Began To Hate - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

I was born a righteous man
Just like you, I'm a loving man
When you stole my land from me
I began to hate
I began to hate
I began to hate you and your children
I began to hate you and your friends
I began to hate with a passion
Maybe I am simply old fashioned

I feed my kids multiple hate pills
Then send them down the road to kill
This is the message I want to instil
Hate without debate
Hate, Hate, Hate
Hate like the darkness
That resents the day

In the land you took away my wealth
Along with my loss went my health
How can a man learn to love and forgive
When you have not returned
What you were never meant to receive

So I began to hate
I began to hate
I began to hate you and your children
I began to hate you and your friends
My children are taught to hate
Obey questions without debate
With their last breathe they dedicate
A moment of hate

    Hate is a very powerful emotion and this poem simply examines that concept with one example. In this scenario, the man seems to have a reason for this strong hatred. In some real life situations, sometimes there are no real answers as to why this emotion has generated itself within someone. (Report) Reply

    I felt bad when someone hated me so i was trying to find out poems on hate. Then, this was the first I've found and this is scaring.
    Are you writting this from your point of view or the point of view of someone else? Because it looks like expressing the hate and it doesn't look like from you. Anyway please tell me
